See Reykjavik’s highlights at your own pace by riding a double-decker bus around the capital, hopping on and off whenever you please at the attractions you find most intriguing.
After departing from the pier in a double-decker bus, you will soon arrive in the heart of Reykjavik, which the Vikings founded in the 1st century. In the Old Norse language, Reykjavik means “smoky bay,” a reference to the smoke-like geothermal steam in this area.
Your bus and several others will make continuous loops around the city, allowing you to hop off at attractions of interest. Stay for as long as you like and then simply hop on another bus whenever you’re ready. It’s a great way to linger at favorite destinations and skip others. The audio commentary on the buses will describe the upcoming attractions to make your choices from the more than a dozen stops easier.
You might hop off at the National Museum of Iceland, which displays thousands of invaluable artifacts such as medieval tools, nautical implements and embroidered wedding dresses. The Maritime Museum concentrates on Icelandic fishing and coastal cultures. For an even deeper dive into the underwater world, stop at the Whales of Iceland exhibit.
If you wish to shop, be sure to hop off at boutique-lined Laugavegur Street and at the Old Harbor, which also caters to serious shoppers. If you prefer a mall environment, stop at Kringlan, a collection of more than 150 shops under one roof.
