This is a must do for New Years Eve...to see the magnitude that the city of Reykjavik explodes in colors with fireworks is truly breathtaking. The party that accompanies it is a nice gathering of fellow travelors.

Amazing! Fireworks EVERYWHERE! Bonfire was good.
This tour was so much more than we expected, following a visit to bonfire and fireworks we were taken to The Perlon and watched the whole of Reykjavik from a balcony, fireworks and celebrations for 2 hours with a couple of glasses of bubbly included.

New Year's Eve was beautiful. Seeing all of the fireworks were amazing! 2 problems were they ran out of Hot Chocolate and NO TEA! Only coffee. They should be more prepared. and they drop you off so far from your hotel and you have to walk at 1:30 in the morning back to the hotel. They should drop you off at their office more light .
This was amazing and the time spent watching the display was well worth it. A not to be missed experience
Iceland wins NYE for all time! We were picked up by a mini coach and dropped off a few minutes later at the Gray Line headquarters to check in and then load a large motorcoach. We had a fantastic guide and who gave us the itinerary as we made our way to a large community bonfire. Dress WARM! My toes were freezing at times and I had on silk liners, 2 pairs of wool socks, and snow boots! The bonfire had hundreds of people, a fun band, and there was a big fireworks display. The Northern Lights also made an appearance for 10 minutes! We were then taken to the Gray Line bus depot where they set up a party with some donut like things, coffee, hot chocolate and water. They mentioned it was the first year they were doing this. There were 750 of us just standing around listening to just okay music. There were portable restrooms clean and stocked! to use during this stopover. It's necessary, but a little boring so just prepare! Then the fun happens! We were taken to a top point in the city for an hour where you get out, enjoy a glass of sparkling wine, and just take in hundred and hundreds of fireworks displays going on at the same time all over the city for as far as the eye can see! There is NOTHING like this anywhere I've been and it's surreal. Iceland doesn't do one big fireworks display. Everyone usually just buys fireworks from the local rescue squads as a way of supporting them and then after a nationally televised broadcast, everyone goes back outside and enjoys fireworks. I HIGHLY recommend everyone going to Iceland during New Years Eve and checking this out! Bucket list item for sure!
Great time at the Bon Fire and Fireworks tour. The only thing I did not like was having to go to the bus depot for coffee, hot cocoa and bathroom trips but it was only a slight inconvenience. The tour guide and the driver did their best to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and the location to view the Fireworks at midnight was absolutely fantastic. Thanks for a great trip.
The fireworks were epic! Never in my life have I seen anything like this. After the bonfire and before the fireworks they took us to the bus depo for coffee, hot chocolate, and donuts. There was live entertainment. Clean port-a-potties were also available. An added bonus: the northern lights were visible! Unlikely in the city, but it shows you anything is possible.

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.
