Experience Iceland’s fascinating nature at the Wonders of Iceland exhibition in Perlan Museum. Find out why volcanoes erupt, step into an ice cave, and get to know this country’s wildlife, including whales and puffins. This is the perfect tour for families and nature lovers looking to learn more about this land of ice and fire.
Perlan Museum and Observation Deck is an iconic sight on the Reykjavík city skyline, with its splendid blue dome jutting out over the pine trees of Öskjuhlíð Forest. A visit to this beloved establishment is a must for any guest looking to learn more about the country, from its formation to the diverse wildlife that now calls the island home.
The Wonders of Iceland exhibitions provides an entertaining and insightful overview of the natural forces that, to this day, continue to sculpt this country. Through multimedia displays, detailed reconstructions and cinematic showpieces, Perlan sets out to teach its guests all about the volcanos, glaciers and wildlife that has made Iceland famous.
Perlan Museum’s premier attraction is its artificial ice tunnel, measuring at 100 meters long and built from 350-tons of snow from the mountain, Bláfjöll. A specialised cooling system keeps this makeshift cave frozen throughout the year, offering explorers a unique and authentic experience from the comfort of the city.
Another huge draw is Perlan Museum’s own version of the Látrabjarg bird cliffs. This amazing and detailed reconstruction is based on the vertical precipices found in Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, a part of the Westfjords. You’ll also be able to visit the Áróra Planetarium and see the beautiful Northen Lights dance above some of Iceland’s most spectacular locations.
After your time exploring the exhibition is done, make sure to ascend to the Observation Deck. Up here, you will have staggering 360-degree panoramic views over the capital city. You’ll get a new perspective on its most recognisable landmarks, including Hallgrímskirkja Church, Harpa Concert Hall, Mount Esja and the glittering, aquamarine waters of Faxaflói Bay.
