Practical Information

We recommend using the Flybus (https://www.re.is/flybus) when travelling from Keflavík Airport to your accommodation in Reykjavík. You can buy a ticket at the sales desk (on the right when you exit the customs gate). When buying the ticket please remember to tell them which hotel you are are staying at in Reykjavík. The airport is about 50 minutes (driving) from Reykjavík city center so it is expensive to take a taxi. Flybus+ is reasonably priced and convenient.

The conference takes place at Radisson Blu Saga Hotel, Hagatorg, 107 Reykjavík. Please use the entrance located on the north side of the building. The conference rooms are on the second floor (see map).

The conference dinner on Wednesday evening will be at 20:00 at Fiskifélagið, Vesturgata 2a, 101 Reykjavík. The restaurant is located in the cellar of a house in downtown Reykjavík. This is approximately a 15-minute walk from the Hótel Saga (see map). Please note that this dinner is only for those who pre-booked and paid – if you wish to join the dinner group, please contact the conference account by November 10th at the latest.

Val McDermid’s keynote address and the drinks reception will take place from 17:30 on Thursday evening at Tjarnarsalur at Reykjavík City Hall, Tjarnargata, 101 Reykjavík. The city hall is located on the north side of the Reykjavíkurtjörn lake. This is approximately a 10-minute walk from Hótel Saga (see map).
