We walked to The Pearl from our hotel (it was a nice mid-way point between the hotel and Nautholsvik Beach). Our main plan was to stop at the top and grab some pictures, and that's exactly what we did. Gorgeous panoramic views-and it didn't cost a cent! It looked like there were some fun shops to see and places to... More

You are able to go up to the 4th floor and walk outside. Great view of the city! Nice to be able to use the restroom and food and shopping is available here.

A view into the future, which could only be obtained in Iceland. The building is designed and constructed to stand out and be an example and landmark

I got some of the most beautiful panoramic pics from atop of The Pearl. The inside geyser is cool and I even had some gelato while there.

From the top of the dome there are great views of the city. We went to this on an organised tour, not sure I would have made the trip otherwise. There is a restaurant there and good cycle paths around this area.

While there is a restaurant here, which I have not tried, the views of the city from the observation deck are worth a visit.

We went there late afternoon and a receptionist let us in so we could go up to the viewing deck. There you can walk around and see the whole city. And it's free!
