New Year's Celebration Festival in Reykjavik and Iceland is filled with fun, fireworks and lots of bang for the buck.

Join the fun, fireworks, and festivities around Reykjavik. New Year's eve in Iceland certainly goes out with a bang! The sky at midnight lights up with fireworks as the Icelanders enjoy their celebration. This tour package includes three nights in Reykjavik. During your stay a number of excursions are included such as the Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs, and the Blue Lagoon. The New Year's Gala Dinner is enjoyed at the exclusive revolving Perlan Restaurant, which is situated above geothermal hot water tanks and offers some of the best views of Reykjavik.

There is a lot to see and a lot to do in a short time. Explore Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, walk around the world-famous Geysir hot spring area, visit the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, travel to South Iceland with white glaciers and black lava beaches, pass the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano, enjoy the excitement of northern lights hunting and relax in the geothermal Blue Lagoon. All this to very attractive prices.

Day 1  : WELCOME

Welcome! Your exciting Iceland New Year's celebration festival begins today. You will arrive in Iceland and take a non-guided transfer from Keflavik International Airport to your accommodation in Reykjavik. There are optional Northern Lights evening tours offered.


Today we will drive over the highland plateau of Hellisheiði, passing the geothermal town of Hveragerði, known for the green house culture. Onwards we will explore the other worldly hot spring area of Geysir - multicolored pools of water and mud. Strokkur, the Great Geysir’s little brother, is spouting to a height of about 25 meters and erupts at about 5-7 minute intervals. After lunch (included) we drive to the mighty Gullfoss (the Golden Waterfall), perhaps the most beautiful in the country. We walk around Gullfoss Falls, where the river Hvitá tumbles 32 meters in a double cascade. If weather & road conditions allow, we stop on the way back to Reykjavik at Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, known for its fascinating natural beauty and spectacular geological features. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible; a rift that is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates and you can literally walk between the American and Eurasian continental plates. (Tour is from 09:00-16:00)

17:15 Transfer from your hotel to Perlan restaurant where you will enjoy a festive 4-course gala dinner. After the main course, guests will be picked up by our guides for the evening Reykjavik Bonfire & Christmas Lights Tour where we celebrate with Icelanders at the bonfires that are situated all over the city. The tour takes about two hours. After the tour we go back to the Perlan restaurant for dessert. At midnight, with sparkling wine, we celebrate the New Year by watching the fireworks from the panoramic balcony. Afterwards we will dance the night away. Transfer back to hotels around 2 o'clock at night (transfers start at 00:30 for those who want to go home early).


At 10:30 we will leave Reykjavik and explore the Reykjavik peninsula with its dramatic sea shores, fascinating hot springs, moonscapes, lava fields and fishing villages. The guided tour continues to the bridge over the continents and to the light house at the edge of the Reykjanes peninsula. After lunch (included), we reach the Blue Lagoon. An oasis in the lava owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant, looming large over the aqua tinted waters. We stop for 2 hours for a refreshing bathe or a swim in the pleasantly warm mineral-rich water, reputed for its healing properties. We return to Reykjavik around 17:30. Evening and dinner on your own.


Your tour of Iceland ends here. We hope you've enjoyed your stay! Transfers will take place without guides to the Keflavik Airport.
