I arrive at KEF around 11 am in mid-May, and plan on heading to my hotel in Reykjavik and will spend the rest of the day hanging out in the city. The next morning, I am doing a Golden Circle tour with Iceland Horizon - they have told me that the tour will return to Reykjavik between 4-5 pm. My flight to Amsterdam leaves the next morning at 6 am, so I booked a room at the Aurora Star near KEF to make sure I get there on time.
Here's my question - I was thinking that it would be nice to go to Blue Lagoon that last evening, but was wondering about the logistics of getting there. I figured I would take Flybus or Gray Lines to the airport after the tour bus drops me off, and then head to the hotel, but is there a way to get to Blue Lagoon from either the airport or hotel? And is it worth the price and hassle of getting there and back?
The other option would be to stay in Reykjavik for the evening to hang out at one of the pools before heading back, but I'm worried about getting back to the airport hotel that late. It looks like Flybus's latest trip from the city is at 9 pm, but do they ever cancel? I'd hate to be stuck and have to take an expensive cab back.
Or last option - is there anything interesting to do it in the nearby towns, such as Keflavík? Thanks!
