Frequently Asked Questions

About Cheap Bus Tours in Iceland

Cheap bus tours exist for those seeking to see and experience Iceland’s nature while minimising costs as much as possible. Some of these are guided tours—either single or multi-day—while others are bus passports which allow you to use buses to reach your destinations.

1. What is a bus passport?

A bus passport is a ticket that can be used to travel along certain routes across the country via buses. Some will allow you to complete the route in one sweep, while others will let you use certain routes, in any given direction, to fit your time frame.

2. How long does the bus transfer from Keflavik airport take?

The bus ride from Keflavík International Airport to Reykjavík takes approximately 45 minutes.

3. How regular are the buses from Keflavik to Reykjavik?

Buses normally run at least every hour, day and night, to and from both locations. They sometimes run less frequently, but so long as flights are coming in and out of Keflavík Airport, the buses are operational.

4. Will I still have a personal experience on a guided bus tour?

Your guide in Iceland is sure to be friendly, experienced and full of interesting knowledge. Though there will be more guests than on a private tour, your guides will still be available for questions.

5. Can I stop at the Blue Lagoon en route to or from the airport?

Yes, multiple options allow you to spend time at the Blue Lagoon spa before continuing your journey.

6. Will the bus from the airport take me directly to my hotel?

Some operators will take you to your hotel, while others will stop only at bus terminals.

7. Do cheap bus tours run in winter?

Some do, but it is specific to the tour in question. Bus passports are only valid in summer.

8. Are there cheap bus tours around the Ring Road?

Yes, some encircle the full country while others cover everything up to Akureyri, in a counterclockwise direction.

9. Do cheap bus tours go to all the major sites?

Yes, day tours take you around the Golden Circle, Snæfellsnes Peninsula and along the South Coast, while longer packages will take you to the east and north. The Westfjords and Highlands are the main exceptions.

10. Can I partake in any activities on cheap bus tours?

Some cheap bus tours include components such as horse-riding and glacier hiking, and cheap bus packages will often have tours you can opt into while booking.

My husband and I really enjoyed our Golden Circle Tour with Lasma. She was very warm, friendly, spoke very clear and excellent English. Listening to Icelandic music was nice. I was so happy to have such a strong Wi-Fi connection oun board our bus! Would highly recommend this tour.

Day Tour to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

This tour was the best tour that I have done in Iceland. Altough you have to get up early it is worth it to get out of bed early. The pick up near the guesthouse has been on time and everthing was well organised. I am not sure if we had luck with the weather for said our prayers well, but the weather has been very good, the sun came out for the entire day and it was quite warm. Albert who was our tourguide has been friendly and charming all the way. He provided us with loads of information and there hasn't been a dull moment. The tour is very long, but there are several bus stops where you can use the facilities and buy a drink or a snack. A lunchbreak and a stop for dinner was planned as well. My personal hightlight was the glacier lagoon. I have never been so close to a glacier and icebergs. The additional booked boat trip was defenitly worth the money. My second hightlight was walking behind the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. I have enjoyed the shower :-) Time flew by and the 14 hours were over too soon. I could have stayed on that tour for several more hours. Iceland is such a beautfiful and fascinating country. Booking a tour is a very stressless and good way to get around. Thank you Albert for being such a great tour guide. I can highly recommend booking this tour. I am sure that I will come back to Iceland, maybe next time in winter. This tour operator will be my first choice for another tour.

Golden Circle Minibus Tour | Full Day Excursion

Me and my wife had a AMASING day travling with our guide Gusti. It was a mix of great views, interesting facts and humour. Gusti was very enjoyable to listen to and a safe driver that mixed core facts about Iceland with fun factoids here and there. It really was 5 out 5 ! We enjoyed the drink and smoked lamb and Gusti even fit in a extra stop for the bus to stop and pet/see Icelandic horses (and a very cute dog). Would recommend this to everyone that goes to Iceland!

Golden Circle Minibus Tour | Full Day Excursion

What a great day out. Not usually one for organised tours but the smaller group on the mini bus rather than a big coach made it feel quite special. Our guide Siggy was brilliant. Lots of facts and funny stories along the way. Highly recommended this tour for first time visitors.

Our one-day tour led by Siggi was fantastic. Siggi gave us a lot of info about Iceland and told interesting stories. There were also well-selected Icelandic songs played on the car which I enjoyed so much as I'm a big fan to Of Monsters and Men. Time given to have closer look at each spot is reasonable and it was an enriched day.

Great tour! we visited 12/22 right after the solstice with only 4-5 daylight time. The guide is very experienced. The tour was very well arranged and we were able to see most of the attractions before it got pitch dark. The views are spectacular. Thanks!

This was a wonderful trip, although daytime was pretty short when we got Iceland in December, our tour guide "Soldier" ( Sorry I don't know how to spell his Icelandic name) gave us exceptional experience through 8-hour bus trip. Highly recommend this trip to everyone!!

Brahim was very prompt, cordial, respectful, and very knowledgeable. He provided us with engaging facts and historical accounts that make Iceland what it is today. He obviously care about his job and our satisfaction as tourists - when 2 in our group went "missing" he literally spent about 30 minutes looking for them inside the restaurant and around the geyser area. He was also very considerate of those that threw up in the bus as well as those who could not walk to the beautiful sights - he would park closer to the scenic wonders just to make the distance of the walk shorter!

This is a great tour and a must-go in Iceland! We were lucky enough to see the amazing northern lights on our way back to Reykjavik. Our tour guide is very kind to stop the car twice and let us see the lights. We especially like the tour guide who is knowledgeable, humorous and caring. The whole trip is well-planed with reasonable numbers of sights. Highly recommend!
