  • Honestly, very sorry was almost 12 dollars on steam, and on-time 1:15 minutes minimum, you had to be there, while paromchit does not pick you up. Seemed, Ah what to do there. In the end, was not enough hours) with a long side of town offers a wonderful view to the mountain and the ocean, without inclusions of civilization) you understand that you're in Iceland) ferry schedule is different in winter and summer, in November the first ferry to the island in 13:15, 14:15, 15:15. Back the latest in 16:30.
