Restroom availability on tours

We are in Reykjavik for 7 days and plan day trips. I have a concern about being on a tour and the accessibility of restrooms. Not sure if the bus lines have facilities. Can anyone advise? Thank you. Going in January 2020.

This is something only your tour provider can answer, unless you tell us the name and somebody here is familiar with the tour.

On the day trips I've taken there were no restrooms on the buses but numerous stops are made.

Be aware, if you take a Northern Lights tour it is possible there will be no toilet facilities where they go. The tour lasts three hours. There is, however, a boat trip and the vessel has facilities. I've never taken it but this is what I hear. You can always inquire at your hotel.

I've been to Iceland three times-- the last time was in November--and it is a wonderful place. Everyone speaks English so it is easy to get what you need.

Depending on where you're heading to and the tours you intend to take prepare for toilets to be few and far between and for those that you find to possibly be pay toilets.

Taking a South Coast tour, the Black Beach Restaurant at Reynisfjara Beach offered public pay toilets, while if I remember correctly the restaurant also had toilets for their paying customers. Which is not at all uncommon -- on another tour to Snæfellsnes we stopped at a cafe which had public pay toilets, then toilets for paying customers.

On the Golden Circle each of the major attractions -- Gullfoss, Þingvellir, & Geysir -- had modern toilets. But at others they were the modular sort.

If you are heading off on a tour where toilets are lacking, the good guides take every opportunity to stop at cafes and the like for toilet breaks.

January 2020? I’m not sure if every stop facilities is open year round. Therefore I agree with previous comments to check with the tour company. At this time of year will depend upon which tour you take.

Good luck and happy travels!
