Hi! I am traveling to Iceland in mid-July with my 79-year-old mom and my two teenagers. This trip has been postponed twice due to Covid, so we are really hoping to make it this summer! We are going to be on a tour that starts in Reykjavik and we are arriving in Reykjavik two days before the tour starts so that we can get over our jet-lag, see a few things in the city, etc.
The day we arrive, we just want to walk around the city, get our bearings, etc., I think we will be quite tired from the overnight flight. The second day, I want to go to the Perlan Center Museum in the morning. I see that there is a family pass that I can buy in advance – my question #1 is: The pass is good any day, but are some of the exhibits timed entry? Such as the Ice Cave, Northern Lights exhibit, etc.? I would like to have a ticket with timed entry to the exhibits if needed.
My plan is to hit the Café and Ice Cream Parlor with Observation Deck for lunch.
After enjoying the museum in the morning and having lunch, we want to go back to the hotel and change/get ready for the Sky Lagoon. I definitely need to buy advance tickets to the Sky Lagoon. So my question #2 is, any advice for what time to book Sky Lagoon? I want to be sure to see the highlights at Perlan, allow time for lunch, time to get back to hotel and time to get a taxi to Sky Lagoon. Our hotel is centrally located in Reykjavik but we will need to take taxis most places because my mom can’t walk too far and does not move quickly anymore!
