The downtown area of Reykjavik…

Like Copenhagen and Dublin, Reykjavik is extremely walkable and pedestrian friendly.  Renting a car and trying to navigate it’s one-way, narrow streets may not be for the faint of heart.  However, if you want to travel easily and affordably, you can’t beat the country’s S Bus system.  The service, which is extremely efficient and runs like clockwork, is extensive.  You can purchase 1 day or 3 day passes and travel in unlimited fashion throughout the city.  It also serves the areas far outside the city limits.  You can in fact purchase passes by zones and see the Capital Area, i.e., Reykjavik, South Iceland, West and North, North and Northeast.  Tickets can be purchased at the Hlemmur Square Bus Station, one of the network’s main hubs, or from the following locations :

–  Kringlan, Laugardalslaug, Mjódd Bus Station, Snarlbarinn Hlemmi, Sundlaug Árbæjar, Sundlaug Breiðholts, Sundlaug Grafarvogs, Vesturbæjarlaug
