Reykjavík, the world’s northernmost capital, is a friendly city that offers a surprising amount of things to see and do. Whether you are seeking the bustling energy of a cosmopolitan city, the thundering thermal energy in the ground beneath your feet, or the serene energy of the surrounding landscape, Reykjavík promises a memorable visit for everyone!

Reykjavík's energy also drives the city’s cultural scene. From the avant-garde to the historical, Reykjavík’s galleries, museums and theatres support a vibrant and sophisticated artistic culture; moreover, annual festivals, special exhibitions and stage productions mean that the cultural calendar is always full, with plenty for visitors to enjoy.

The Reykjavík City Card offers free entry to a great selection of museums and galleries, all swimming pools in Reykjavík and free unlimited travel by bus within the Reykjavik Capital Area. In addition, the card also gives you a free ferry trip to Viðey island and discounts on various tours, in shops and on services. 

Admission to the museums is free for those under 18 years of age; however, there are fees for children (from the age of 6) on city bus services and on the ferry to Viðey Island (from 7). Note that there are also entrance fees for children (6 and over) at the thermal pools, and from 5 years and over at the Animal Zoo and Family Park.

In order to accommodate families, we now offer a special children’s City Card, at a significantly reduced fee. Cards are valid for same duration: 24 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours.

It is worth mentioning, that senior visitors (67+) do not pay admission to the Reykjavík Thermal Pools. In addition, The National Museum, The Culture House and the National Gallery of Iceland offer seniors (67+) a 50% discount on admission.
