You city card is great! You can drive around the city with the really punctual buses and see so many different museums, especially the open-air museum and the harfnarhuis are really recommended! But the best thing is the free entry to the thermal baths. Really great

I'm glad I got the card for our 3 day stay. Mainly for public transport in Reykjavik. At least that way you can quickly get from one extreme of the city to the other. It hadn't really been necessary for the museums.

Easy to apply for. Given card at maritime museum.. Free entry to some, reduced price at Perlan viking museum.. Have to get a separate pass for the double decker red bus but used it on the yellow bus.

So useful, getting into various places and really easy to get around on the bus. So so much cheaper than taxi

We used for route bus and the use of warm water pool.
