    Thank you so much for posting this! I’m going to be in a very similar situation this summer (22 hour layover in Reykjavik, not planning on booking a hostel), and this post has given me a lot of great ideas. One quick question: How long did it take you to go through security back at the airport? I’d love to maximize my sightseeing, but I also want to make sure I give myself enough time to get to my flight, especially since it will be an international one. Thanks!

    • Hi Keirnyn. So glad to hear this post was helpful! I’d recommend departing Reykjavik for the airport at least 3 hours for your departure. Transportation from the city center to the airport took me slightly longer than I had expected. Security wasn’t too bad for my flight, but it is international so its best to arrive 2 hours in advance. I hope you have a great trip!

    JUST A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

    1. DID YOU PAY FOR LUGGAGE ON WOW AIRLINE AND IF YOU DID WHERE DID YOU STORE IT AT THE AIRPORT WHILE YOU WENT INTO TOWN?
    2. WERE THERE A LOT OF PEOPLE SLEEPING BECAUSE OF LAY OVERS?

    • Hi Wendy!

      1. Yes, you will pay for luggage on WOW Airlines – they are a low cost carrier, so while you may pay a lower rate, you should expect to pay extra for baggage.

      2. Yes, there were many people sleeping because of layovers. I was far from the only one.

      Hope this helps and happy travels!

    My 18 year old son is traveling Lax to Reijkavik with a lay over for 19 hours on wow. Then on to Berlin on wow where he changes planes and heads to Moscow on Aeroflot. Do you know if he has to pick up his bags during the layover or will they be checked through to Moscow or st least Berlin due to carrier switch. He has sports equipment etc that would be a pain to drag around for 19 hours in iceland
