Sterna, (formerly Bílar og fólk), is one of Iceland’s leading scheduled bus companies. Running bus routes to almost all corners of the country, Sterna also owns and operates the popular Bus PassPorts, an easy and affordable way to experience Iceland. This summer the company is introducing a new service, Day Tours, with all the best that Iceland has to offer.
Day Tours - Sterna’s latest addition!
If time is at a premium, yet you still have so much more you want to see, Sterna’s Day Tours offer the perfect solution. These affordable excursions take you to some of Iceland’s best loved and most beautiful locations, including the Golden Circle, Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Jökullsárlón and the Westman Islands. Each trip lasts roughly 12 hours.Bus Passports
What exactly is a Bus Passport and why is it so popular? Similar to the InterRail Pass used in Europe, the Bus Passport allows you to see Iceland at your own pace. You may choose between several tours, taking the Ring Road around the country in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction, hopping off at any point along the way, and hopping on again whenever you choose. You may also add side trips onto your Circle Tour for even more sightseeing possibilities.
The Passports come in many shapes and sizes and offer several possibilities of travel, including: 1. Full-Circle Passport. The Full-Circle Passport is valid for one trip around Iceland on Circular road number one. 2. Full-Circle Passport Including the West Fjords. Leaves the Circular road at Borgarnes to enter it again at Bru in Hrutafjordur - or vice versa. 3. The Snaefellsnes Peninsula & National Park Passport. This also covers the
route through the Snaefell National Park. 4. The West Iceland & West Fjords Passport. This passport includes the sea passage from Snaefellsnes across Breidafjordur and Flatey island to the mountainous fjord landscapes of the North-West peninsula. 5. Gullfoss - Geysir Passport. This passport also takes you not so far away from Reykjavík to the Þingvellir National Park and then on to Laugarvatn, Geysir & Gullfoss. Other possible stops on the way back include the agricultural town of Selfoss and Hveragerði, the greenhouse village. 6. Landmannalaugar in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve and Skaftafell National Park. As always this passport allows you travel either clockwise or counter-clockwise around the chosen route. Whichever way you go, both the South Coast near sea level and the Southern Highlands a few hundred metres higher up are abundant in charming attractions. 7. East Circle via Kjölur. Basically the same as the Full Circle passport except, instead of the #1 Circular Ring Road section between Reykjavík & the valley of the river Blanda in the North, we take the Kjölur mountain route from Reykjavík & Gullfoss in the South to Blanda in the North. This stretch opens up the panorama of the central highlands between the glaciers Langjökull and Hofsjökull. 8. The Westman Islands. Named after Irish slaves, full of life and exciting
nature - the Westman Islands are unique. This passport provides you with transportation from Reykjavík to Bakkafjara, the ferryboat across and a tour around the Islands you will never forget. Surely one of the most exciting things you can do in Iceland! We will then take you back the same way and hopefully you will keep on coming back!
