This bus is great to get your bearings and get around. There were 16 stops which made it easy to get to the further away places like the harbour. Great to get to the museums. A full circuit is 75mins

There are 16 stops during the summer months. You can utilize this service to make it a "museum day". Do take the bus once around. It only lasts 75 minutes. Recommended.

As noted earlier by another, wait times are short 15 min. on average but sit and wait for the bus as it will be near you but turning corners before reaching you. The stops are all worth getting off for, camera ready.

It usually takes 30-40 minutes for the next Hop On Hop Off. If you buy a regular bus pass on the 'Straeto', you could navigate yourself back to the Town Center, or wherever you are staying in Reykjavik. I bought a Straeto... More

It definitely does NOT go to the Blue Lagoon. A private tour company is designated for that tourist site. If you really want to go-- There's a tourist info booth at the KEF airport and you can purchase a ticket to go there... More
