perlan

Perlan is one of Reykjavik’s most notable landmarks. Perlan was built on top of six hot water tanks, each of which holds over 4 million litres of hot water. Perlan opened in 1991 and features the Winter Garden exhibition space, a cafeteria, restaurant and an observation deck.

The Reykjavik Heating Utility constructed an artificial geyser by Perlan to educate and entertain visitors. A 30 metre deep hole was drilled and a steel tube and pipeline installed. The water that passes through the pipe has a temperature of 125° C.

In the surrounding Oskjuhlid area, approximately 176,000 trees have been planted, forming a pleasant woodland area. There are many trails for walking or cycling along with peaceful clearings that are ideal for relaxation.
