Experience NYE like a local!

If you're reading this, then you're probably coming to Iceland during New Years Eve.

That's great! It's an extremely exciting time to be in Iceland. Before heading to the best spot to celebrate the new year and watching the fireworks display at midnight, you might want to go on this tour.

The tour takes you to experience the warmth and light from a bonfire, as well as seeing a fireworks display.

Going to a bonfire is a very local thing to do and most Icelandic people will have fond memories from their childhood of going with their parents to bonfires before heading home to watch the yearly NYE show and finally lighting fireworks at 00:00, to "blow-in the New Year" as we say.

Don't miss out on the full Icelandic NYE experience - book your tour now.
