A really fun activity for our first day in Iceland! It was a great way to get to know Reykjavik and see some of the sights. It shared some fascinating insights into the history of Iceland along the way. The clues were the right level of challenging so we had to think a little to work them out, without being frustratingly difficult!

It's a pity that the app is a bit old school and not very interactive or intuitive. The goals are also not up to date (a lot of history, hardly anything modern like eg Harpa, information about the music scene, etc.) and the content could be a bit more balanced. Of course, 13 euros for two people in Reykjavík is not a lot of money, but you don't get much on offer either.... At least we had expected something else. Overall, a nice experience (due to the exciting places) with room for improvement (in terms of technical implementation and correct , modern c
