Fimmvörðuháls Hike - Confused how to get back to Skogar?

Hello,

My friends and I are looking to do the Fimmvörðuháls hike this June starting from Skogar.

Based on doing research, it appears that there SHOULD be buses that go from Thorsmork/Basar Hut to Seljalandsfoss where we will transfer onto another bus to Skogar.

However, when I look at some of the major bus companies' schedules, there doesn't appear to be any later buses that we can take?

Company 1: https://www.re.is/media/brochures/ioyo-sched…

Company 2: https:/…bus_stop_re_seljalandsfoss_skogar.htm

We were planning on starting around 6AM so that we could realistically finish around 6 - 8PM and then take a ~8PM bus out of Thorsmork/Basar. However, it seems like all of the buses on these schedules either don't go that route or are way too early.

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

I haven't seen any buses that connect Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss this year.

I would stay in Hvolsvöllur the night after the hike and then take the bus to Skógar from there the next day.
