Perlan 360° observation deck

A must-visit for any tourist, not only for the world-class museum but also for its incredible architecture, amazing panoramic views of Reykjavík, and the excellent restaurant, café and gift shop.
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.
 
The observation deck has panoramic disks that tell you the names of the mountains that form the horizon, from Keilir on the Reykjanes peninsula in the south, to the world famous Snæfellsjökull glacier that lies on the end of Snæfellsnes peninsula in the north. A large part of the horizon belongs to Esja, the mountain of Reykjavík, in all its glory.
 
By the panoramic disks guests can listen to descriptions of the view and the landmarks on five languages: Icelandic, English, Norwegian, German, and French. Every year, hundreds of thousands of guests come to the top of Perlan to enjoy one of the best views you can get of Reykjavík and its surrounding area.
 
Open all days 09:00AM – 07:00PM
Last tickets sold at 06:00PM
 
The Observation Platform is included in the Glacier and Ice Cave Exhibition.
