bus price Seljalandsfoss to Porsmork
Posted July 7th, 2012 - 8:19 pm by from Prague, Czech Republic (Permalink)

Is it possible that the bus from seljalandsfoss to Porsmork costs 3700 ISK ? We rent Opel Vectra car, which is probably not possible to reach nether the beginning not the end of the Landmalaugar-Pormork trek. So we would need to leave the car somewhere in Road 1 and take a bus. We are just surprised by the price of a bus for 30 km destintion.

Anybody else has diffirent experience, advice how to do it cheaply? We checked the prices at: re.is and nat.is.

Thank you, Zuzana

The cheapest way is to take a bus from Reykjavik to landmannalaugar and walk all the way to Skógar, then take a bus back tio Reykjavik and then rent a car for the rest of your trip.
The most useless expense you mention is to rent a car while you are trekking!
The bus to Thorsmörk is expensive as there are lots of glacial streams to cross it requires a big 4x4 bus, and it takes time and a really good driver to drive it, for the safety of everyone. So ii makes sense it is not cheap.
You can check out Sterna as well, I am not sure their prices are really different.
Hope this helped!
