Relocating to Iceland

Find your way to Iceland

Iceland is perched close to the Arctic Circle mid-way between Europe and North America. Iceland has gained notoriety for its airline stopping volcanos, stunning scenery, and northern lights. Now a popular stopover destination for people traveling between Europe and North America, several airlines fly to Keflavik International Airport (KEF). There is ferry service to Seyðisfjörður, Iceland that connects with the Faroe Islands and Hirtshals, Denmark. It is essential to plan ahead when taking the ferry!
