Full description
Fireworks are legal in Iceland and the locals make good use of this! After attending a community bonfire, locals warm up with food and drinks. The atmosphere intensifies at midnight as thousands of families gather in the streets, each making their own fireworks display. Tons of fireworks light up the sky in a massive display with unending explosions of color! This New Year's tour provides you with the opportunity to watch it all go down - or up! You can choose to be picked up at your hotel or you can join the tour company at their office. You will then travel to a favorable viewpoint, where the group will make a celebratory toast with a glass of sparkling wine while enjoying this magnificent event. Please remember to dress very warmly as we will be standing outside to watch the show!

Fireworks Fab Take your own Bubbles!

Fireworks amazing the folks of Reykjavik certainly know how to burn money! Never seen so many fireworks for such a sustained period of time a good 45 Mins where ever the eye could see explosions. The Grayling Travel guys fun and mildly entertaining but really two bottles of warm Cava for 50 passengers a slightly embarrassing after . Iceland is a very dry country anyway no alcohol in supermarkets only government-run outlets. It does sell alcohol in restaurants etc but Tres expensive. So if you are planning a dry January a great place to start you off slowing up (unless you too have money to burn!). Fab place for experience all very "Fortitude " scenery wise and lovely people. Winter 3 hours of Daylight!

Best tour yet!

Although I was surprised to discover that the viewpoint was literally a two minutes drive from my hotel after having already driven into the city Centre for their main office pick up location... The evening was by far worth the journey. Never before have I seen a fireworks display like that of Icelands and I'll be sure to spread the word. The tour guide and bus driver were funny and spoke perfect English! Thanks again!
