07, Getting to Thórsmörk by bus
Our volunteers make their own way to the meeting point at Langidalur volunteer camp in Thórsmörk and the easiest way to get there is by bus. During the summer months, there are several companies running daily bus services to Thórsmörk. We recommend that participants do not buy their bus tickets until they receive their final details email from us as ticket discounts may be available.
Getting to the Langidalur volunteer camp
Scheduled buses stop at the three main tourist huts / campsites in Thórsmörk and Goðaland (Húsadalur Volcano Huts, Básar and Langidalur). The meeting point is at our main volunteer camp at Langidalur. Both Húsadalur and Básar are both about 2km (30 minutes walk) away from Langidalur, along well marked trails.
