Explore our range of exciting cruise ship shore excursions from Reykjavík, Akureyri and Ísafjörður
Custom Tours
Akureyri & Ísafjörður Shore Excursions

Regularly scheduled bus tours with set tour start times and durations are often not suitable for cruise ship passengers. Tours might start before your ship docks or not return in time before your ship is due to set off again. That is why we have created special shore excursion tours with start times to suit the ships docking on any given day.

BusTravel Iceland has been operating tours from the Reykjavik area for over 60 years, offering a variety of tours to Iceland’s best attractions. We have tours departing from the capital, Reykjavík, Akureyri in North Iceland, and Ísafjörður in the remote Westfjords. For summer 2024, we will be also be operating Húsavík, Seyðisfjörður, and Grundarfjörður shore excursions.
