The Reykjavík City Card

Reykjavík City, the capital of Iceland, is an interesting town. Little enough to have a small-town charm, and yet big enough to have a vibrant cultural scene, with museum, cultural festivals and concerts ongoing pretty much throughout the year.

What is the Reykjavík City Card?

The Reykjavík City Card is a great way to experience Reykjavík for less. It includes free entry to all of the public museums, public swimming pools, the city bus and the ferry to Viðey island. It also offers discounts on private museums, select restaurants, tours and stores.

What types of the Reyjavík City Card are available?

The Reykjavík City Card is available in 24, 48 and 72 hour increments, depending on how long you need it for, and is available for children as well as adults.

When is the Reykjavík City Card valid?

The card is valid for a given number of hours, so for instance if you don’t start using a 24-hour card till the afternoon, you will be able to use it the following morning as well.

When is the Reykjavík City Card available?

All year, every day. Note, some museums are closed on mondays.
