Highland Bus (previously "Iceland On Your Own") is the name for Reykjavik Excursions' scheduled bus operation. During the summer, Highland Bus is the perfect way for the independent traveller to experience Iceland's most popular hiking routes.

No guides are on our scheduled busses.

Pick up and drop off is not included. Most of our departures from Reykjavík stop at Reykjavík City Hostel/Campsite and BSÍ Bus Terminal.

Tickets can be bought on this page, at the BSÍ Bus Terminal in Reykjavík or at selected information centres and booking offices around Iceland.

To check-in, please send an email to [email protected] with your booking number, your preferred dates, departure and arrival location as well as departure time, at least 48 hours before departure.

Please note that the bus might be fully booked on your preferred departure even with the 48 hour notice, the sooner you check-in the more chance there is for availability.
