If you visit intensively, it allows you to save a lot. On the other hand, you would not go to some museums at all, and if they are on the card, it is a pity not to see them. Most of the facilities are small and I have the impression that two intense days in Rejkiavik are enough to see most of the attractions on the card.

Great value and easy to use. I had no problem exchanging the voucher for the 72-hour Reykjavik card at "What's On". You receive a pamphlet with a map showing eligible locations for the card. You need to check their website to find additional places that offer discounts for the card.

I got a lot of use out of my 48 hour Reykjavik City Card and was able to visit many museums, get discounts, got free access to the city bus system, and free admission to the local pools which were all inclusive with the card! Great for museum lovers and I highly recommend visiting the local swimming pools for a fun Icelandic experience! The pick-up was easy and quick as well. Highly recommended!
