Hop On - Hop Off | City Sightseeing

Hop on a cherry-red City Sightseeing bus to get around the city! See all the best attractions, shops and restaurants Reykjavik has to offer, and let the day take you wherever you like. The bus tour with City Sightseeing allows you to explore the city at your leisure, with the opportunity to hop on and off at any of the convenient bus stops placed at some of Reykjavik's best locations.

For example, hop off at Stop 2 for the chance to partake in some whale watching. Spot minke and humpback whales, porpoises or even dolphins! Don't forget to look out for feathered friends, wheeling high over the waves and nesting on the craggy cliffs. You may see many bird species, such as gulls, geese, and the adorable puffins.

Other stops include:

Lækjartorg - The town square, located beside Laugarvegur, the main shopping street

The Old Harbour - Restaurants, cafés and cocktail lounges dot this up-and-coming area where most whale watching and puffin boat tours can be found

Whales of Iceland - One of our newer museums, this one is dedicated to the many species of whale that are found in the North Atlantic. The exhibition features 23 life-sized models, an interactive installation and virtual reality experience

Hallgrim's Church - Our famed church with distinctive architecture inspired by the basalt cliffs found on our southern coast, it features a statue dedicated to national hero Leifur Eriksson and a chance to go to the top of the soaring bell tower to view the entire city from above

... and more!
