    What to Expect
    Meet your guide downtown or enjoy pickup from your Reykjavik hotel. Then, board a bus and head off into the city for an exploration of traditional New Year's Eve celebrations, which include fireworks and bonfires.
    Drive in search of a bonfire while your guide tells you about local New Year's Eve customs, myths, and traditions. Disembark your vehicle to attend a bonfire with your guide, chatting it up with the locals and enjoying the atmosphere. You're served complimentary drinks to warm your frosty extremities.
    Then head for the biggest fireworks display of the evening, the city's official blast off that begins around 11:30pm. Your bus will ferry you to one of the best vantage points to see the full display. Count down to the new year, then clink glasses of complimentary wine to start the year off right.
    Stay at the party until about 1am, then board your bus to head back to your drop-off point downtown or at your hotel.

    Not a way to celebrate New Year's Eve... The good reviews in the past of this tour were all because of the breathtaking viewing point of the fireworks, the Perlan with the 360° observation deck. But no longer access to the Perlan! Without the access...More

    Do not book this trip. This tour was absolutely not what it was advertised to be. I wish I had read ALL of the reviews before I booked it. I agree with other reviewers who said that the description is misleading. It is completely so....More
