Where next?

There didn't seem to be any tours from Hofn to several of the local attractions. If you hope to visit the glacier by bus, make sure you check the timetables carefully the day before, as they leave very early.

Attraction tip

It's almost imperative to have your own car to get to the glaciers from Hofn. Alternatively, try to book activities with the small, local companies ahead of your arrival; if travelling alone, these are extremely expensive.
