New Year's Eve Bonfire and Fireworks Show

Bring in the Icelandic New Year with a bang courtesy of this magical evening which begins with a visit to a traditional bonfire before taking in the spectacular fireworks exploding over Reykjavik.

On this tour you will get the chance to experience a slice of genuine Icelandic culture and witness some of the age-old customs surrounding the country's New Year's celebrations, which are considered to be one of the world's most breathtaking spectacles.

Firstly, join in with the locals as they attend community bonfires scattered throughout the different neighbourhoods of Reykjavik - a 200 year old custom where friends and neighbours gather around the fire, singing songs and lighting sparklers.

After a light refreshment stop, the real action begins when, at midnight, up to a thousand tons of fireworks are left off by people all over the city, lighting up the sky over Reykjavik.

You will get to take in this incredible 'show' from a desirable viewpoint whilst also toasting in the New Year with a glass of sparkling wine.
