Meet your guide downtown or enjoy pickup from your local Reykjavik hotel to start off your New Year's celebration. Board a minibus to head off into the city for an exploration of the traditional New Year's celebrations, which include lots of fireworks and bonfires.
Drive through the city and see that almost every street hosts a bonfire and a neighborhood celebration.

Great tour. Such a different experience to anything I have done on New Year's Eve anywhere in the world. In particular, the polar opposite to NYE in Australia.

We especially enjoyed this tour. The fireworks were seen from a church on a hill in the middle of Reykjavik. We could see the fireworks a full 360 degrees!! It surrounded us. The bonfire was interesting. Waiting for one of the travelers who got lost in finding the bus for 30 minutes was a little annoying. But I would have wanted them to wait for and find me if it was me. The hotel stop was then delayed and snacks were mostly gone.

We arrived in Reykjavik on December 31st, booked the tour as not sure what went on.
The tour guide and driver were fantastic, taking us to the bonfire and fireworks early so we got the best views and best parking. The stay for coffee in the middle was a bit long but the guide took us away early and gace us a guided tour of the city

I have to admit. When we first started this trip we was a little persuaded to leave, the first bonfire with the live band playing was so nice. It was nice to see the traditional side to Icelandic people. But what let it down was the long wait in the hotel grand for everyone to finish watching their traditional comedy show, which felt like forever. But we waited to see what happened. The guide took us to a high piece of land to view the fireworks. IT WAS AMAZING. I have never seen anything like it, here in England we have fireworks for around 5 mins and you have had enough but thats all we get. In Iceland I witnessed around 200 fireworks at the sometime for about an hour..I was in awe. I had never seen anything like it and I dont think I will again, not like that. It was incredible. If you are doing this trip and you find it a little boring at first I do advise to just hold on and wait.. its worth the wait, I still havent got over the images in my head due to the fact my camera couldnt take a photo due to it being that bright :
