Company profile

We operate one of the largest coach fleets in Iceland with vehicles of all shapes and sizes.


Reykjavik Excursions-Kynnisferðir was founded in 1968 and has over the last four decades grown into the one of the largest tour operators in Iceland, offering a range of excellent tours and services for individuals and groups. Our staff is comprised of energetic, outgoing, well-educated and experienced professionals, who are as easygoing and flexible as they are dependable.

We operate one of the largest coach fleets in Iceland with vehicles of all shapes and sizes, which can take you, our valued clients, to all the most beautiful spots in our country, however remote. All our coaches are equipped with free Wi-Fi. Reykjavik Excursions is a fully licensed tour operator and travel agent.

Moreover we are extremely proud to be the first Icelandic tour operator to be granted the ISO 14001 certification for environmental management from the British Standard Institute (BSI). The company has certifications from Vakinn, both for their quality system as well as for their environmental system. Vakinn is Iceland tourism's official quality and environmental system and its aim is to strengthen both quality and safety in tourism by means of guidance and support, as well as developing a sense of social responsibility. The company is as well on its way in implementing OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety System. We are also Iceland's only company with a membership in the Global Passenger Network, an international association founded to promote the highest standards in coach operations worldwide.

Reykjavik Excursions has operated the main bus service between Iceland's capital Reykjavík and Keflavík International Airport – Flybus – since 1979. With regular scheduled bus services coordinated with each departing and arriving flight, we are committed to providing the best possible connections for visitors to our beautiful country.

Our day tours allow you to experience many of the most stunning and exotic places in Iceland. Should you have special wishes, our dedicated team of planning experts are there to listen to your needs and tailor-make tours to fit your requirements. Should you want added flexibility and freedom, our Iceland On Your Own program might be just the thing for you – or, alternatively, you may want to hire one of our coaches or mini-buses, with a driver, to take you where you want to go. Back in Reykjavík, our Hop On - Hop Off double-decker buses are very popular and allow you to take in the city's main sights easily and comfortably. Our most recent addition is Enterprise Rent-A-Car, offerning the latest car models in all categories from extra small to luxury cars.

We look forward to serving you at one of our two sales offices – at the BSÍ Bus Terminal in Reykjavík or at Keflavík International Airport.
