The Magic Bus. Bus Route 51

From January 2 Strætó, the capital area bus company, will extend its route system to not only cover the Reykjavík area but as far as Höfn in Hornafjörður, southeast Iceland, with bus number 51. The distance from the capital is around 500 km (310 miles). Route 52 will take you 140 km (90 miles) east to Landeyjarhöfn harbor, connecting the mainland with the Westman Islands. Bus 71 will take you to Þorlákshöfn, bus 72 to Laugarvatn, and number 73 to Flúðir.
Let me take you down, coz I’m going to Höfn

Route 51 starts at Mjódd in Reykjavík’s suburb of Breiðholt and will take you to some of the most visited tourist spots in the republic like Skógarfoss waterfall, Vík, and Skaftafell, part of the Vatnajökull National Park. And just before reaching the end station at Höfn in Hornafjörður, the bus will come to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country.
