A spectacular vantage point

Perlan, or “The Pearl” sits prominently atop Öskjuhlíð just outside the city centre, overlooking the Nauthólsvík beach and Reykjavík Domestic Airport. Its most striking feature is its design—a glass domed structure sitting atop six huge hot water storage tanks. Most visitors come for the impressive 360-degree views over Reykjavik from the viewing deck—especially during summer sunsets, but inside there is also a rotating gourmet restaurant, a café with lighter dishes and an exhibition space.
