Sightseeing on a Budget in Reykjavik

Sightseeing on a Budget in Reykjavik

Reykjavik is a famously expensive city, where a beer in a bar might set you back as much as a meal in another city. With careful planning, though, you don’t have to spend a fortune on sightseeing. Here are our tips for saving money in the Icelandic capital.

Book a Super Saver

For those who want to do as much as possible, it pays to book a Super Saver, which combines two best-selling activities—such as whale watching and a northern lights hunt—into one tour at a discounted price.

Take a Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Compact Reykjavik is a highly walkable city, but some of its most popular attractions, such as the Laugardalur Valley, are spread out. To save on transportation, a hop-on hop-off tour carries you all around the city and to farther-flung sights for just one price, plus you can enjoy the benefit of onboard commentary to learn about the city's attractions as you go. 

Choose a Tour That Includes Lunch or Tastings

Instead of booking a regular walking tour, choose one that includes food tastings to save on the cost of meals. Some experiences, such as cooking classes and history-themed walking tours, even include a full lunch. And, rather than spending too much money on beer, book a pub crawl or brewery tour that includes drinks. 

Buy an Attractions Pass

Save on admission fees and other costs by purchasing a multiattraction City Card. Valid for 24, 48, or 72 hours, these passes include entry to top attractions, use of the public bus, and discounts at restaurants.
