Pickup optional

Pickup starts 30 minutes prior to the departure time. Please be ready and on the lookout for a green Smartbus. As each driver sometimes has a few stops, it can take up to 30 minutes to finish the pickup, so there is no need to worry if the bus is not there right away. You can be picked up from most hotels, hostels, and guesthouses. Please note that in the city center some areas are restricted for buses and the driver can only stop at certain bus stops. If you need direction to the nearest bus stop, please visit the city's web guide (www.busstop.is). Please note: Pickup is not available from Airbnb or private housing. We suggest you select the nearest hotel address or bus stop and request the pickup from there.
