Iceland is one of those locations with distinct winter and summer seasons. Whether you are on school break or just trying to determine the best time to visit Reykjavik, it is all about the season. The winters in Iceland are harsh to the point where you are better off getting around with a sled. That being said, the area blanketed in thick, fresh powder is breathtaking. In the summer, you have festivals, camping, and the area is much easier to explore. Ideally, you want to travel from July – August. The weather is great and you have the midnight sun with warm temperatures.

How to get around in Reykjavik?

Like most Icelandic cities, Reykjavik is one of those destinations where public transportation is important. The city relies heavily not only on their public transportation to get around, but also because they want to stay environment-friendly.

Bus

Straeto buses allow you to purchase in 20 ticket increments. 20 adult tickets cost approximately 8,300 ISK, 20 tickets for children aged 12 – 17 cost 3,000 ISK, and 20 tickets for children aged 6 – 11 cost 1,300 ISK.

Car

Ideally, you want to rent a car to visit the outskirts of Reykjavik. Most of the main tourist attractions are further away from the city centre, and you will rely heavily on your own vehicle. It is best to book your car rental at the airport.

Additional info and tips about visiting Reykjavik

Things to do and places of interest in Reykjavik

Whether you are a first-time visitor of Iceland or you have finally made your way to the coast of Reykjavik, you want to fill your itinerary with some of these key attractions to get the most out of your time here.

  • The activities in the area are plentiful. Take a bike tour along the coast and see the sights of Iceland’s capital. You can also go on an angling adventure, which lets you learn how to properly fish trout the Icelandic way. Sit back, relax, and watch the whales on a whale watching tour of the ocean or take a wildlife adventure tour where you can walk among rare species of animals.
  • Visit the farms of the area, including Kidafell Farmhouse where you can find a variety of horses to ride and even venture out onto a horseback riding tour.
  • The parks and nature in Reykjavik is breathtaking. At Ellidaardalur Valley, you see a lush landscape with a fishing river. Head over to the Krysuvik Geothermal area where you can learn about geology. Then, take a boat ride over to Videy Island, which is the treasure of Reykjavik, and you can escape the pace of the city.
  • You cannot come to Iceland without seeing the Northern Lights. Known as the Aurora Borealis, it is the scene of the breathtaking lights of the sky that you can see in the winter during clear nights.
  • Reykjavik City has plenty to explore too. Year-round, you have activities including music festivals, film festivals, the media art festival, and more. While you are here, visit the iconic museums of the area like The Saga Museum or the Viking Maritime Museum. At The Culture House, you find an exhibition that includes artifacts from three of the public museums, including the National Gallery of Iceland.

Tips and tricks for visiting Reykjavik

The best way to see Iceland is at night. Most of the attractions are full during the day, but at night and the longer summer days, you get the midnight sun, which means you have light for 24 hours. Skip the crowds and take advantage of those endless days. To save on eating costs, purchase your food right from the farm. Most farmers have self-service stands too that are designed for travellers. They trust that you will pay for what you take, so do not take advantage of their generosity. If you want to try Icelandic beer, avoid the supermarkets. Instead, you need to visit the Vinbudin, which is The Wine Store of the country. Lastly, mingle among the locals out there. You will be surprised to see how friendly the locals are and that they are more than willing to help you find just about anything in their city.
