The Iceland On Your Own Hiking Pass is a great option for the adventurous traveller, as it is the ideal way to experience two of Iceland´s most popular hiking routes on your own. You simply purchase one pass and with it you get a bus transfer from Reykjavík to the base of the hike and back to Reykjavík from the hike’s end when you are done. Please note that travelling back and forth on the same bus route is not available. You can take as much time for the hike as you please within the pass’s time frame (14 June-15 September).
To guarantee a seat on a preferred departure, pass holders need to check-in to each route on our website, at least 48 hours in advance*.
The Laugavegur hiking trail is one of the most popular hiking trails in Iceland and a favourite among the locals. The hike usually starts in Landmannalaugar and from there it is a 3-4 days hike to Þórsmörk nature reserve. If you intend to hike the ever popular Laugavegur from Landmannalaugar to Þórsmörk, or vice versa, this is the pass for you.
Fimmvörðuháls hiking trail is extremely popular and during the last few years it has become even more so. One of the reasons for the popularity is the volcanic eruption that took place in the middle of the trail in 2010. The hike takes you through a pass between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull and takes about 8-10 hours to complete, depending on the hiker’s pace. Travellers can even do the hike in 2 days, spending a night in the hut in Fimmvörðuháls along the way.
