Getting to Hrafnseyri/Þingeyri

Hrafnseyri is on the northerly coast of Arnarfjörður, south of Þingeyri, with limited public transport; winter time it is normally inaccessible because of high mountain roads.

When travelling with public transportation to Þingeyri, you usually pass through Ísafjörður, the capital of the Westfjords. To get to Ísafjörður there are two options:
1. Public bus: Only operated during high season (mid June to mid August). The timetable has not yet been released, but should be posted on the website www.bogf.is. Please confirm timings before making plans. If you come by ferry boat Baldur to the southerly Westfjords, you could make it to Hrafnseyri directly twice a week.
2. Air travel: There are normally two scheduled flights daily from Reykjavík to Ísafjörður, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. They can be booked online at www.airiceland.is. You will save considerably by booking well in advance. Flights leave from the Reykjavík domestic airport, not from Keflavík International airport. From Keflavík international airport, you take the FlyBus to Reykjavík main bus station and a smaller FlyBus onwards to either your hotel or the domestic airport. In case of time pressure, you can take a taxi for the short trip from the main bus station to the domestic airport. Both the FlyBus as well as the taxi within Reykjavík can be paid by credit card.

When arriving at Ísafjörður airport on Monday late afternoon, we shall collect you there. If you arrive earlier, you will find the little FlyBus outside. It brings you directly to your destination in Ísafjörður, either your guest house or the University Centre. Please note, that here you have to pay cash.
3. If you arrive by car you can choose between road 60 through the southerly Westfjords (shortest connection directly to Hrafnseyri/Þingeyri) or road 60/61 through Hólmavík. www.vegag.is
