Perlan - The Pearl, Reykjavík: 25 reviews and 92 photos

  The pearl
by hat53

On top of the geothermal water storage tanks a restaurant is built. Because of it's shape it is called the pearl.

There are two types of restaurants the cheaper snack restaurant for tourists that visit which is located on the 4th floor and the more luxury restaurant which is only open in the evenings and is located on the 5th floor.

From the pearl you have great view on over the city if it is not to cloudy.

On sublevel 1 there is a fountain that simulates a Geyser. The water gets as high as the 4th floor. Outside there is a artificial Geyser with warmer water.

On of the tanks houses the museum of Sagas.

You will need approximately 1 to 2 hours for you visit.
