On the Bonfire & Fireworks tour we’ll experience two Icelandic New Year’s Eve traditions. We’ll begin with a Nordic bonfire, a tradition dating back to the Viking Age. The family-friendly atmosphere and the fire will warm us up as we sing along together, bid farewell to the old year and prepare to welcome in the new.

As midnight draws near we’ll find a good spot to enjoy the second tradition—a fireworks display like no other. In Iceland, everyone sets off fireworks at midnight all over the city, and when we say everyone, we mean everyone. We’re not talking sparklers, we’re talking real, dazzling fireworks. From a carefully selected vantage point we’ll get a view of the colorful explosions erupting all over the city, with a glass of sparkling delight in hand.
