Key Highlights

  • Explore frozen tunnels and go inside a 350-tonne glacier
  • Go on a magical tour of Iceland and watch the Northern Lights dance in the planetarium
  • Climb to the top of Perlan for stunning panoramic views of Rekjavik, the countryside and Snæfellsjökull glacier.


It sits atop the hill like an alien spaceship, offering stunning views of the surrounding landscape and secrets to uncover inside. Head indoors, and you’re entering into the very heart of the natural world. Wrap up warm as this is going to be a chilly one. Want to know how glaciers are formed? Then welcome to Perlan Museum. It’s no alien spaceship but a museum that showcases Iceland’s natural wonders.

The Perlan Museum takes you on an icy adventure and will reveal how these giant ice blocks play a vital role in nature. 

And if you choose, after exploring the tunnels and planetarium, where you’ll be flown around the solar system, climb to the top for stunning views of Reykjavik and the surrounding countryside. A state-of-the-art facility that showcases the force of nature. It all makes for a special day out.


  • If selected: Wonders of Iceland exhibition, including access to a real indoor ice cave, the 360° observation deck, and the Water in Icelandic Nature exhibition
  • If selected: Arora – Northern Lights Planetarium Show, including access to the 360° observation deck
