Overlooking the whole of Reykjavik is The Pearl, a dome shaped building captivating millions of tons of hot water! The walk towards the dome itself is extremely refreshing with perfectly landscaped garden and artificial geysers. The building was designed by Ingimundur Sveinsson.

The dome houses a revolving an upmarket restaurant which gives an exquisite dining experience to the guests, the delicious spread of food along the breathtaking view from the dome delivers a great experience altogether! For a less expensive treat one can visit the cafeteria which is extremely family friendly offering a great array of sandwich, cakes and baverages.

On the ground floor we have the Saga Museum, a wonderful display of Icelandic History giving out an insight as to how the people of Reykjavik lived in the olden times.

The Pearl, Reykjavik Reviews - Write a Review

  • If you have time to spare in Reykjavik, then give this a visit. Very informative with a one of a kind underground (man made) ice cave. Friendly and helpful staff and fairly priced considering some things in Iceland. There is even a free (yes free) shuttle bus that runs every 15 minutes from multiple pick up points around the city.

  • A real hidden treasure! Inside this old hot water storage tower is a restaurant, cafe and viewing platform with the best views in Reykjavik and also an artificial ice cave! The ice cave exhibit is remarkable, not only is the cave itself large enough to feel as if you were in a glacier, but the guides are fun and knowledgeable and there are some really interesting displays on glaciers.

  • Free shuttle bus from Harpa to Perlan was a nice touch. Exhibition centre was nice and clean. Man made glacier tunnel was impressive and really cold (take the coat they offer you). Nice pictures before you go in. We were fortunate that there was a large school group behind us so we were put in before them on our own. Guide was really nice and explained it all to us. Interactive exhibit after was interesting and pretty cool using motion sensors for screen interaction. Price about GBP 20 each (steep) but we had a 50% discount so was worth it for us. Better than I thought it was going to be. Would recommend.

  • Another must visit in Reykjavik, we did the the glacier tour, it is cold in there, make sure you are bundled for the cave. Learn about glaciers in their interactive museum and please go to the observation deck / restaurant / cafe. You'll love the views!

  • Interesting and eye-catching. A restaurant, a glass dome, and the storage tanks for the hot water supply that keeps Reykjavik streets clear of snow, and heats the houses. Walkable.
