About The Hotel Bus
Every day we go to new places around Iceland experiencing everything from the most beautiful Icelandic waterfalls to a “glacial lagoon”.
In the evening, we will stop at campsites, etc., where you will have the opportunity of taking a shower and socialize with each other during a good dinner before going to bed.
The first night – Check-in and departure
The tours start in the evening from the Keflavik airport at 8 PM (check-in from 7 PM). We will drive for a couple of hours to the first overnight site, and the first meal served will be breakfast the next morning. So whenever your flight arrives during the day, just stay at the airport – and be ready for a great tour around Iceland.
If your plane arrives in the evening (the day before), we have two ideas for you: Book a hotel room in Reykjavik and spend the departure day there. Or you could take a night at the airport and make a trip to the Blue Lagoon if your plane arrives in the morning.
