FROM 2,900 ISK

The Glaciers and Ice Cave Exhibition is the first exhibition of the new PERLAN MUSEUM – Wonders of Iceland. The exhibition is built inside one of Perlan’s six hot water tanks. It illustrates the glaciers, their history and bleak future, and gives visitors the amazing opportunity to experience travelling through their realistic man-made ice cave. The 360°Reykjavík museum & observation deck is included in the admission fee, allowing amazing views of our wonderful little city.

Perlan have developed a method to accurately replicate an ice tunnel which is dug through a glacier. It is the first indoor ice cave in the world, right here in the middle of Reykjavík. Travelling through the cave, visitors will learn about the glacier’s dangers, the secrets it keeps, and how the disappearance of our glaciers is leading to an enormous change for both Iceland and the rest of the world.

At the other end of the cave a staircase leads you up to the second storey of the tank, to the peak of Vatnajökull Glacier, with 360 degree views. There you will learn about Iceland’s glaciers, their effect on the land and what will happen if, or when, they disappear.

Opening hours: Daily from 9am – 7pm. 360 Deck is open until 8pm.
Price, adults: 2,900 ISK
Price, children 6-15 years old: 1,450 ISK
