New years eve
Old Icelandic customs and traditions
Traditional Iceland Community Bonfire


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.
