You can start and finish your day at whichever sites you choose. For example, after picking up your card on day one, you could begin with one of the above attractions to maximize your sightseeing time.

You could pick your card up at the Reykjavik Art Museum Hafnarhus and check out its modern art exhibitions before visiting the photography museum next door. Other museums and galleries in this area that offer free entry include the Settlement Exhibition, the National Gallery of Iceland, and the National Museum of Iceland.

You might visit the Reykjavik Family Park and Zoo in the afternoon before relaxing in the Laugardalslaug geothermal pool.

On day two, you could venture a little further afield by taking the ferry to Videy Island, visiting the Arbaer Open Air Museum southeast of the city, and soaking in one of the nearby geothermal pools, such as Arbaejarlaug or Breidholtslaug.

In addition to free entry to many sites, the Reykjavik City Card also offers discounts in selected shops and for various tours and services. 

When a day of sightseeing leaves you hungry for a delicious meal, head to Ning’s Chinese restaurant, Pho Vietnamese Restaurant, Rossopomodoro Italian restaurant, the Fish Company Restaurant, or Kopar Icelandic restaurant for 10 percent off your meal. 

Lebowski Bar is an excellent spot to finish your evening with fantastic food, drinks, bowling, and sports on the big screen. You’ll also get 10 percent off your bill here. 

You must use the Reykjavik City Card consecutively. For example, if your card’s start time is 11:00,  it’s valid until 11:00, 48 hours later. Other than that, you have the freedom to choose what you visit and when.
