Hiking in Iceland
In a land filled with geological wonders, an untouched wilderness and vast open spaces, it makes sense that hiking is a favourite activity among the locals. Some of Iceland’s most popular hiking trails are in the south of Iceland, in and around the Þórsmörk area. These trails (e.g. Fimmvörðuháls and Laugavegur) come highly recommended for their extraordinary beauty, glorious views and diversity in landscapes.
The Highland Bus
The green oasis that is Þórsmörk is surrounded by the Iceland highlands, glaciers and glacial rivers and crossing these rivers and tracks is not recommended for regular vehicles. Reykjavik Excursions runs scheduled highland buses daily to and from the most popular hiking trails in the area. Explore your options to buy transfer to and from your designated route or keep your options open with our flexible Hiking Pass and we’ll help you do Iceland on your own.
Departures from BSÍ Bus Terminal, Hella or Hvolsvöllur, daily between June 16th and September 5th.
After a great summer we have decided to prolong our daily departures for Þórsmörk to September 15th and Landmannalaugar to September 12th
