Frequently asked questions

What is an Icelandic bus passport?

A bus passport is a ticket that can be used to travel along certain routes across Iceland 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. Please note that bus passports are only available in the summer months.

How long does the bus transfer from Keflavik Airport take?

The bus ride from Keflavik International Airport to Reykjavik can take up to 60 minutes because of stops along the way. A direct drive from the airport to downtown Reykjavik takes about 45 minutes.

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 if there are few incoming flights, but so long as flights are coming in and out of Keflavik Airport, the buses are operational.

Will I have a personal experience on a guided bus tour?

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

Will the bus from the airport take me directly to my hotel in Reykjavik?

Most operators will take you on a shuttle bus to the BSÍ bus terminal in downtown Reykjavik and from there you will be dropped off at your hotel on a minibus. This is because traffic for large buses is very limited in Reykjavik's historic centre so a minibus is needed to reach many of the hotels and guesthouses there.

However, some operators offer a direct minibus airport transfer such as this Premium Airport Direct Transfer for 47 USD.

Do bus tours in Iceland run in winter?

Yes, there are bus tours that run throughout the year. Some tours specifically run in summer, whereas others are available only in winter. Check the tour availability before booking your trip to Iceland.

Are there cheap bus tours around the Ring Road in Iceland?

Yes, there are plenty of Ring Road tours available. Other tours will cover everything up to Akureyri and Lake Myvatn, in a counterclockwise direction.

Will I be free to leave the tour group on my bus tour in Iceland?

You will be given some room to explore the attractions but will be informed of when and where to rejoin the group. Missing this will likely hold the tour up, making you quite unpopular with your travel companions.

Do cheap bus tours go to all the major sites in Iceland?

Yes, day tours take you around the Golden Circle, Snaefellsnes 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 and are mostly unreachable by bus.

Can I partake in any activities on cheap bus tours in Iceland?

Some cheap bus tours include components such as horse-riding and glacier hiking. Other cheap bus packages will often have the option to add on tours during the booking process. You can also, for example, book an activity-driven bus tour. For example, there are options to book a northern lights tour or a trip to the black sand beaches in the south of Iceland.

Which language will my guide speak on my cheap bus tour in Iceland?

All tour guides in Iceland speak fluent English, and tours are conducted in English unless otherwise stated.

How long does the bus stop at each attraction when on a bus tour in Iceland?

Unless otherwise stated, the bus will stop at each listed location, presenting the opportunity for sightseeing and photographs. Stops will usually last anywhere between 10 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on where you're stopping. A lunch stop will last approximately half an hour.

Does my bus tour include admission to the Blue Lagoon?

Please check the tour description to confirm this. Multiple options allow you to spend time at the Blue Lagoon Spa before continuing your journey, but admission usually has to be booked in advance.
