Bus transfer between Akureyri in north Iceland to Reykjavik city traveling across the highland interior on Kjolur route that since the time of settlement in Iceland has connected the north and south regions of Iceland. Multiple stops are made along the way at scenic areas, including Hveravellir Nature Reserve, Kerlingafjöll mountains, Gullfoss waterfall, and Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur
From Akureyri Bus Terminal in Oddeyrarbót 2, the bus follows highway no. 1, west from Akureyri offering great scenery of rich farmlands, narrow valleys and towering mountains.
Shortly after passing through Skagafjörður valley, the route exits highway no. 1. towards the west highlands past the Blönduvirkjun Hydro-electric Power Station and its huge reservoir up to Hveravellir nature Reserve where a short-stop is made for food and rest.
Set between two glaciers the Hveravellir Nature Reserve is an oasis in the midst of the highland desert with geothermal activity, smoking fumaroles, and bubbling hot springs. Hveravellir offers a spacious camp-site situated in a large meadow with great views.
From Hveravellir the route continues south across the interior highlands between the glaciers Hofsjökull and Langjökull towards two of Iceland's greatest attractions, the Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot spring area where a short stop will be made.
Leaving Geysir area, the route follows highway no. 35 through Grímsnes area down to highway no. 1 and over Hellisheiði to BSÍ Bus Terminal in Reykjavik's city centre.
I took the Highland Route from Akeureyri to Rekjavik in order to get back to their airport without paying extorbitant short haul flight prices and see some beautiful things. Great service with lots of stops. If I were to do it again, I would stop at Konjour (excuse spelling) and do the 3 day hut hike (all way marked), before continuing.
