Fine dining with the best view
A natural Pearl. Oskjuhlid is rightly called a natural pearl. More than 176,000 trees have been planted on the hillside, resulting in a woodland setting rare for the city and appreciated by natives and visitors alike. The bicycling and walking paths afford pleasant moments and are much frequented, but one can always find peaceful glades where it is easy to forget the bustle of city life
The finest in Icelandic cuisine
For fine dining, there is nothing to beat the Perlan Restaurant. While your taste buds thrill to superb cuisine, you will enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of Reykjavík and beyond as the restaurant gently completes a full rotation every two hours.
