You can take the bus that leaves every 30 minutes from the airport, starting from 03:30 in the morning and stops late in the evening around 23:00 or you can rent a car and maybe start with a quick stop in the famous Blue Lagoon wich is only around 10 minutes away from the airpot and in the same direction as Reykjavík is. There is now a new road Sudurstrandarvegur that you can drive to go directly to South Iceland.
