New Years Eve Bonfire & Fireworks Tours
Bonfire & Fireworks
On this tour you get the chance to experience genuine Icelandic culture and age old customs surrounding the New Year's celebrations in Iceland which by many is considered one of the world's most breathtaking New Year's celebration.
Thousands of people attend community bonfires scattered throughout the different neighbourhoods of Reykjavik and at precisely midnight the celebration's atmosphere becomes pretty wild with incredible amount of fireworks that people light all over the city.
We select the best viewpoint to watch the fireworks while raising a glass of sparkling wine under one of the world's most spectacular fireworks displays.
Lighting bonfires on New Year’s Eve in Reykjavik is an age old tradition, tracing its roots back to pagan rituals of the Viking settlers.
In towns and communities around Iceland, families, friends, and neighbours gather around the New Year's Eve Bonfire to sing traditional folk songs and celebrate the coming of the New Year.
Joining the locals and taking part in this old tradition is a unique opportunity to experience authentic Icelandic culture and customs and to create lasting memories of Iceland.
New Year's Eve in Iceland is celebrated on the last day of the year (December 31) from 18:00 all through the night and into the early hours of the morning of January 1.
On New Year's Eve the shooting of fireworks gradually builds intensity until midnight, when the skies over Reykjavik are set ablaze from end to end with over 500 tons of fireworks erupting into the air in just over half an hour.
Join this tour for the best views of Reykjavik‘s spectacular display of fireworks. Sit back and have a toast and ring in the New Year under a massive barrage of sound and light unlike any you have ever experienced.
