Iceland On Your Own Hiking Pass is a great option for the adventurous traveller, as it is the ideal way to experience two of Iceland´s most popular hiking routes on your own. You simply purchase one pass and with it you get a bus transfer from Reykjavík to the base of the hike and back to Reykjavík from the hike’s end when you are done.
Please note that travelling back and forth on the same bus route is not available. You can take as much time for the hike as you please within the pass’s time frame. View bus schedule to and from Landmannalaugar and Þórsmörk here. Possible to hike all the way to Skógar aswell.
Please note that you need to book your seat after purchasing your Hiking pass. If no passengers are booked 24 hours before a departure, the trip will be cancelled. Read your ticket for instructions on how to book your seats!!!
For travellers that end their hiking trail in Þórsmörk or Landmannalaugar, we offer baggage transfer for a small fee. You can choose between three different areas within Þórsmörk: Húsadalur (Volcano Huts), Langidalur or Básar. You can add baggage as an extra when you book the Highland Pass (the second step of the booking process). The bags are dropped off at BSI Bus station in Reykjavík.
The baggage transfer is limited to a backpack, box, or a cabin size bag plus a sleeping bag (Maximum luggage size excluding the sleeping bag: 55x40x20 cm, maximum weight: 10 kg). Please make sure that items are in a waterproof bag and are properly labeled.
Please note that depending on the delivery location the baggage might be placed in an unattended room or a trailer until picked up. We do not assume no responsibility for baggage after it is dropped off, but in the Icelandic highlands, this shouldn’t really be a problem.
There is no additional cost for taking your luggage with you on the bus.
Further instructions come in your ticket.
We kindly ask travelers to book their seats on the Highland Bus at least 48 hours before departure so that we can arrange the right-sized vehicle for each group or cancel the trip if there are no seat requests. To book a seat, please send an email with your booking number, your preferred dates, departure, and arrival location as well as departure time. The schedule is HERE.
Please note that the bus might be fully booked on your preferred departure even with the 48-hour notice, the sooner you send an email requesting a seat, the more availability.
If no passengers are booked 24 hours before departure, the trip will be canceled.
The Hiking Passport is a ticket that includes a discount. Therefore, it cannot be refunded if it has been partially used.
