We offer a free shuttle bus service to our customers at Keflavik International Airport and within the greater Keflavik(Reykjanesbær) area.
After you go through baggage claim and customs, you will enter the arrivals area. You can wait anywhere in that area, including the seating area nearby. Please do not wait in the departures area or at the restaurants near the departure area. When it is getting close to your schedule shuttle time, please keep an eye out for us and let us know when you see us. We will be holding a sign with your name on it and will be wearing a Happy Campers jacket/shirt.
We’ve all been there and we feel your pain. But our opening hours are from 08:00 to 17:00 and we only offer a free shuttle service to/from the airport during those hours. – If your flight lands in Iceland at 17:00 or later, we suggest finding a place to stay until we open. Just let us know about this change immediately so we can reschedule the shuttle for you. For example, if your flight arrival changed from 15:00 to 22:00, you will have to pick up your camper van at 08:00 the next day, at the earliest. There are many accommodations available in the Keflavik area.– If your flight lands before 17:00, we will wait for you to go through security. Just make sure to have scheduled an airport pick up. For example, if you land at 16:45, and miss the last shuttle, we will find somebody to pick you up. However, if your plane lands at 17:05, unfortunately, you will need to find accommodation in the area until the next day.
We only offer our free shuttle service within the Keflavik area. We do not offer our shuttle service to or from Reykjavik, which is about a 40-minute drive. To go to/from Reykjavik, we recommend booking a ticket on the airport/city bus with Reykjavik Excursions (discount available for Happy Campers customers). We can drive you to/pick you up from the airport when you use the airport bus during our office hours. You can also use the public bus number 55 which stops close to our office and goes to the airport and Reykjavik, you can find more info on www.bus.is. The final option is a Taxi, which is also the most expensive option.
We do not offer to bring the camper to you in Reykjavik, or any other location, and we also do not accept the campervan to be returned at any other location.
The campervan can only be picked up during our 08:00-17:00 opening hours. You would need to find accommodation in the area and have us pick you up the next morning. However, we offer a free 24/7 campervan dropoff service, so you can return the van at any time. Please read more about this service here or see the answer to this particular question above.If you arrive early in the morning, remember, our free airport shuttle starts running at 8:15, so you might have some time to kill until we can pick you up. Thankfully, the airport has free WiFi, some comfortable chairs, and a coffee shop to make the wait easier. Around 8:15, please look out for us holding a Happy Campers sign with your name on it.
With our 24/7 drop off service, you can drop off the campervan any time of day. Unfortunately, Happy Shuttle only runs during business hours. If you need to get to the airport, please check public bus no. 55 (the bus stop close to the Happy Campers office is called Tjarnarhverfi) or call taxi.
