Harpa Guided Tour – Behind the scenes

On this tour you get access to areas that are usually only open to performers, stand in the footsteps of the stars where they prepare before going on stage – and yourself getting pictured standing on the grand stage of Harpa – Eldborg.

You will learn how Icelandic nature, volcanoes and the Arctic light inspired the unique architecture and the amazing glass facade of the house – and be able to photograph it from new intriguing angles. This will be a stimulating journey exploring the less visible brilliance of this rewarded architectural masterpiece.

The guided tour takes 30 minutes. The tour is in English. Please get tickets at the box office desk on first floor.

Special group tours – for a group of 15 or more people, then you can book a private tour.

Professional tour – for the real enthusiast.
