Gain insight into how the Hellisheiði power plant creates sustainable energies and how Iceland’s unusual geology affects the climate. The power plant produces almost all of Reykjavik’s energy by harnessing the geothermal heat that lies beneath the earth’s surface. But that’s just for starters. The plant also takes advantage of an innovative process known as carbon fixation to store waste CO2 underground, and through electrolysis it produces hydrogen, another green fuel. The plant has even been instrumental in creating Iceland’s infrastructure for electric vehicles. The exhibits within the power plant clearly explain all the systems, just as the Wonders of Iceland museum at Perlan describes the country’s geological phenomena. While browsing its exhibits, you will learn about volcanoes, plate tectonics, earthquakes and geothermal power. The museum’s ice cave and glacier displays are particularly insightful, as they show what would happen if Iceland’s ancient glaciers melted due to climate change.


  • Explore an innovative power plant that supports numerous green technologies.
  • Learn how waste CO2 can be safely stored underground for millions of years.
  • Browse the Wonders of Iceland museum for an understanding of the country’s geology.
  • View exhibits that present the effects of climate change, now and in the future.


  • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
  • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.
