The route leads towards east over Hellisheiði through Hveragerði, Selfoss and Laugarvatn, before the bus proceeds to the Geysir geothermal area, the site of numerous hot springs, Strokkur (Butterchurn) being the most active one today. A glimpse of the majestic Gullfoss waterfall is next on the agenda, before the drive north, up to the high plane of Kjölur. The name refers to the plateau between the glaciers Langjökull in the west and Hofsjökull towards east, at an altitude of 650 m above sea level. First stop of the day is in Kerlingarfjöll mountain cabins, a popular stop for hikers often spending 1-2 days hiking in the highlands before continuing the journey. The highland road leads on through the rugged wilderness to the oasis of Hveravellir, with its geothermal area and bathing possibilities. After a brief stop the bus continues along the highland road past Blönduvirkjun hydroelectric power station. In Langidalur valley the road joins Highway 1 and the tour ends in Akureyri. The above itinerary applies in reverse order if one chooses to begin the tour in Akureyri.
