Enjoying the view from the viewing deck on the top of Perlan (The Pearl). This is a giant geothermal water storage facility on Öskjuhlíð hill, with magnificent views overlooking Reykjavik. Although it’s only a few minutes from the city centre, it feels strangely distanced from the hum of urban life, insulated by forests and parkland. The dusk light was magical, and the views over the city stunning; a perfect introduction for our first evening in Reykjavik.
