    If Reykjavík is not on your list of destinations to ring in the New Year, it sure should be! Join us for a celebration at sea.

    The Icelandic way to celebrate is unlike any other as it is filled with food, bonfires, parties and spectacular firework displays. Join us for an unforgettable evening as this experience is sure to light up the dark night sky of Faxaflói bay and the view of the fantastic capital skyline is quite extraordinary. Reykjavík New Year’s Eve Celebration at Sea is a truly unique event you should not give a miss!

    Available: 31 December 2017
    Time: 22:30-00:30
    Duration: 2 hrs.
    Available on New Year’s Eve each year, our ‘Celebration at sea’ is set by the shores of Reykjavík where we have ample views of the capital’s magnificent fireworks from sea.

    Your host for the evening welcomes you onboard our Visitor Centre at the Old Harbour where you will receive a glass of Champagne before boarding the cruise vessel. We start off by sailing at a steady pace into the bay until we get to the best area to watch the show.

    Although there is no official fireworks ‘show’ per se, the residents of Reykjavík and the surrounding areas collectively make for a fantastic performance and there will be glistening and shimmering explosions everywhere you look – a true spectacle for all senses. It is said that each year roughly 200.000 people set off about 500 tonnes of fireworks from 23:00 until 00:00 in the greater Reykjavík area alone – imagine that!

    Stay outside on the deck and keep warm in our comfortable overalls or have a seat in our heated indoor saloon and watch the fireworks display from within. Put on your party hats, grab a snack from your table or a complimentary drink at the bar and enjoy the cruise, fellow traveller’s company, lively music and extravagant and fiery show ahead – and if conditions are just right we might even get a chance to see the Northern Lights!

    When the clock ticks closer to midnight we will do a countdown together and raise our glasses to the New Year!

    …. 10 …. 9 …. 8 …. 7 …. 6 …. 5 …. 4 …. 3 …. 2 …. 1….



    Once we are back in the harbour you have the rest of the night to enjoy all that the downtown area has to offer. Most bars, pubs and clubs will be open well until the early hours of the morning where you can dance the night away and continue the celebration!

    Please note that the tour is subject to weather and conditions at sea. Minimum drinking age is 20 years and therefore all underage passengers must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
