travel by Bus

Posted on April 1, 2009 by

You may plan to travel by bus during your stay in Iceland.
On the island the bus lines are efficient, even if quite expensive; there are many companies managing this public service, and they’re associated in the BSI (www.bsi.is).
During summer time, from June till August, there are trips on the highway #1, the Hringvegur, with stops in every town. There are also trips that go to main towns of the Western Fiords and to the peninsulas of Reykjanes and Snæfellsnes, still on the West side.
From September on, there are fewer trips scheduled and for some areas, the service is suspended. There are discounts on the long trips, passes that may be used during summertime: according to the kind of pass/ package chosen, they offer discounts for trips along the highway #1, to go through the internal regions, or even combine bus and boats in the Western Fiords area.
In Reykjavík, Keflavík, Akureyri and Ísafjörður there are urban lines, on wheels (no trolley buses of course!!!)
