Itinerary

Come and explore Perlan - Wonders of Iceland. 

Perlan is an iconic glass dome building sitting on the highest hill in Reykjavík. In Perlan you can visit an exquisite exhibition where you can learn about the wonders of Icelandic nature and experience them in a unique and unforgettable way.

Visitors will feel the power of volcanoes, earthquakes and geothermal energy and see a 10 m high realistically rendered bird cliff, rich with bird and plant specimens. They will experience oceanic wonders and watch as whales swim below their feet. Walk through a 100-meter-long real Ice Cave, the first of its kind in the world and learn about Icelandic glaciers, their bleak future and the effects of global warming in an amazing interactive exhibition. Visitors can see, feel, and live Iceland’s many natural wonders all in one place. A perfect first stop on the trip to Iceland that is suitable for all ages.
On the fourth floor of Perlan, a large observation deck lies on the top of the hot water tanks and encircles the entire dome to give an amazing 360° view of Reykjavík and the surrounding area. Access to the observation deck is included in the Wonders of Iceland Exhibition ticket.

Following the visit to Wonders of Iceland and the observation deck, guests can buy souvenirs in Rammagerðin, one of the oldest gift shops in Iceland located on the fourth floor. On the fifth-floor guests can enjoy amazing cuisine and incredible view to all direction at Út í bláinn restaurant and Kaffitár café.

The Perlan was an amazing experience. The ice cave was cold, but truly interesting learning about how everything that happens affects everything else.
