Vatnajokull

by ohaiyo Online Now Apr 14, 2008 at 11:33 AM

Hi,

I'm thinking of going to Vatnajokull in July. How do I get there from Reykjavik? How long is the trip by bus? I guess I'll be staying at Hofn. How much time should I spend? Also, what would the weather be like?

    Trying to predict the weather can be difficult because of local on the day variations.
    This information should be used as a guide only.
    Here is the average weather for Reykjavik for this time of year.
    Enjoy your holiday.

    July
    High 54f / 12c
    Low 46f / 8c
    Rain 2.04in / 51.8mm
    Clod (out of 8) 6.1

    Bus from Reykjavík to Höfn appears to depart once daily. Travel time looks to be about 5 1/2 hours. One-way fare is showing as Kr 8800 for an adult, Kr 6150 for Seniors and students, and Kr 4400 for children. Summer schedules aren't posted yet, but take a look at http://www.bsi.is/index_en.html for bus schedule details.

    Also consider flying. Eagle Air flies from Reykjavík Municipal Airport (RKV) to Höfn (HFN) 1-2 times daily. Flight time is one hour. One-way airfare is approximately Kr 10800 for adults, Kr 9400 for Seniors and students, and Kr 5500 for children. Take a look at eagleair.is/domestic-flight/... for details.

    Enjoy your trip!
