Icelandair and Icelandexpress take you to Iceland from the rest of the world.

Sunday the 15th of August, the group will depart from Reykjavík on an exotic bus trip over the Icelandic highlands to the destination at Hólar. The bus leaves at 11:00 from the Reykjavik bus terminal (BSI). On the way, we will see Geysir, Gullfoss and the hot springs of Hveravellir. The trip will take approximately six hours depending on the stopovers. We will offer a lunch-box in the bus for each participant. A bus will take us back, this time on the national road, on Friday the 20th of August. The trip back will take around 4 hours. The bus arrives at Reykjavik bus terminal at 22:00.

For those travelling from Copenhagen, The Icelandair flights FI201 on the 15th of August (departure 07:50) and FI202 on the 21st (departure 01:00) fit to the scheduled bus tours. Note that the airport code for the international airport in Iceland is KEF.
