Iceland is popular. Tourism has rapidly grown since 2010 by 24% per year! In 2010 there were “only” 488 600 visitors. Can you imagine that country of 350 000 people was visited by 1 792 200 visitors in 2016? The estimated numbers for 2017 are over 2 million! Besides being a great boost for Icelandic economy there are some drawbacks.

Reykjavik was never prepared to take so many guests. Trafic has increased, the city center was overtaken by buses going to different accommodations. This situation was really disrupting normal life in the city, that’s why city council decided to create a “bus-free zone”.
Most of the tour operators (including us) offer free pickup and drop off at your accommodation. But since the bus-free zone, it has changed a little. If your accommodation is in the bus-free zone, you will need to find the nearest bus stop to be picked up or dropped of. But do not worry, they are never more than few minutes from your accommodation and you get a chance to see Reykjavik on foot.
You can also send us an email with the name of your accommodation and we will point you to the right bus stop.

Please have a look at the map under to find the bus-stops. Beneath I will also make a list of accommodations and which bus-stop you should choose if you are staying in one.

How we do it here at Back to Iceland.

When you will book one of our tours, you will have a chance to choose a free pickup and drop off from the list. Hotels that are in the bus-free zone will have a Bus Stop in the name.

Hotels that are outside the bus-free zone have just a name and we can pick you from there.

You can also choose your own location in Reykjavik area and we will pick you from there.

And of course, if you have any questions we are always here to help you by phone, email or social networks!
