Itinerary

Introduction

This enthralling and informative tour takes you through the Perlan Museum, one of Reykjavik’s best-known attractions. You’ll leave the Perlan with a better appreciation for Iceland’s natural wonders. 

Located on Öskjuhlíð Hill, Perlan is a Reykjavik icon. We will guide you through the “Wonders of Iceland,” an interactive exhibit on Iceland’s natural phenomena. You’ll learn about the formation of glaciers firsthand, and discover how bleak their future currently is. You’ll walk through the world’s only indoor ice cave, discovering the secrets within. 

Next up, feel the force of volcanoes, earthquakes, and tectonic plates that continue to shape the country today. A lifelike display of Látrabjarg Cliff introduces you to Iceland’s seabirds. A cinematic replica of the ocean plunges you into the depths of the Atlantic.

The Perlan Museum is perfect for both adults and children. Make sure to stop by while you’re in the capital!

Entry onto the 360-degree observation deck is included in your admission fee. This is the best way to see all of Reykjavik and the stunning landscapes that surround it.
