"BusTravel Iceland is a youthful and ageless day tour operator, providing guided day tours from Reykjavik to the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland."
Bustravel Iceland is one of the oldest tourism companies in Iceland and carries that rich heritage on its shoulders in everything it does. Originally founded in 1960 under the name of Þingvallaleið (Thingvellir Route), the company was reimagined in 2015 to take on the form it does today. This reimagining brought with it an all new startup mentality to the tourism industry though while we have the attitude of a startup we maintain our deep roots and experience in the tourism industry. We bring a fresh outlook on sharing the unique qualities of Iceland with our customers.
By thinking outside the box and going the extra mile for our customers, our team is able to provide great service at competitive rates.
We are continually evaluating ourselves and our tours to ensure that we are offering our customers the most innovative and enjoyable experiences at the highest level of service.
Our goal and motivation are to provide both a high quality of service and a selection of interesting tours for travelers like you, so that we can share our unique expertise. We attempt to make travelling in Iceland more pleasant, simpler and richer because we genuinely love our country and what we do.
We meet each day as though is were a new challenge, we take you with our excellent guides and our comfortable coaches onto tours to see the unique destinations Iceland has to offer. More nature, more fun!
On our tours, we share our knowledge about Iceland’s awe inspiring geology, epic history and fascinating folklore. Telling stories is in the blood of everyone who call themself an Icelander, and we are no different!
Our diverse team consists of talented passionate people from a wide range of cultures, all equipped with unique skill-sets. But perhaps most importantly is that our people share the passion for travel and Iceland that we do.
Join us for a day and allow us to share our passion with you!

BusTravel Iceland has gold certifications from Vakinn, both for their quality system as well as their environmental system. Vakinn is the Icelandic tourism official quality and environmental system, and its aim is to strengthen both quality and safety in tourism using guidance and support, as well as to develop a sense of social responsibility. The system is based on Qualmark – The New Zealand tourism official mark of quality and is run by the Icelandic Tourist Board which leads the project in close cooperation with the Icelandic Travel Industry Association, Innovation Center Iceland and the Icelandic Tourism Association.
We are committed to the idea of sustainable tourism, which means that we encourage ourselves and our guests to experience Iceland while striving to make a positive impact on its environment, society and economy.
All of the buses in our fleet are fuel-efficient and meet the highest emissions standards. To minimize our carbon footprint, we are part of the Kolviður Fund, whose mission is to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere by increasing the carbon sequestration of forest ecosystems. We make every effort to design our tours so that their impact on the delicate natural environment of Iceland is minimal
