Keflavik International Airport is the gateway for most passenger flights to and from Iceland. There is a selection of flights to Iceland to choose form with over 25 airlines offering scheduled flights either all year round or seasonally.
If you’re visiting Iceland you should get a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving the UK. The EHIC isn’t a substitute for medical and travel insurance, but it entitles you to state provided medical treatment that may become necessary during your trip. Any treatment provided is on the same terms as Icelandic nationals. If you don’t have your EHIC with you or you’ve lost it, you can call the Department of Health Overseas Healthcare Team (+44 191 218 1999) to get a Provisional Replacement Certificate. The EHIC won’t cover medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment, so you should make sure you have adequate travel insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment and repatriation.
If you need emergency medical assistance during your trip, dial 112 and ask for an ambulance. If you are referred to a medical facility for treatment you should contact your insurance/medical assistance company immediately.
If you have a UK passport endorsed British Citizen, British National Overseas or British Overseas Territory Citizen you do not need a visa for stays of up to 3 months. Other types of British national will need a valid Schengen visa to enter Iceland.
Unique and rare species from Stellar’s sea eagles to ivory gulls, spoon-billed sandpipers to beautiful gyr falcons. These, plus thousands of little auks, puffins, gulls and more, await you somewhere in the far north.
