Ring in the New Year in and get the best view of Reykjavík's amazing firework display with this one-off New Years Eve Cruise. 

Those travelling in Iceland on New Year's Eve should not miss this great opportunity to witness the sky above Reykjavík light up as Icelander's say goodbye to 2017 and welcome in the new year. 

Iceland is famous for its parties and nightlife, with its apex clocking at the midnight of New Year's Eve, when the locals celebrate the end of the year by flocking to the streets and shooting up thousands of fireworks. 

You'll get to witness the celebration from the best location possible, on a boat out on the open ocean of Faxaflói Bay. You might even catch a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights.

You'll set sails from Vesturbugt harbour in Reykjavík city at 11 pm and head on out to the open ocean where you can see the skyline of Reykjavík illuminated by the fireworks. 

On board, you can choose a seat in the cosy indoor saloon if you are feeling cold, or outside at the viewing decks where you can feel the wind in your hair. No matter where you are seated, you'll enjoy a fantastic view of the beautiful Reykjavík city.

You'll take in the fireworks over Hallgrímskirkja Church and Harpa Concert Hall as you'll sail out on the Bay. As the clock strikes midnight, you and your fellow travellers can toast the new year with your complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Should you wish to have another drink, you can purchase one at the bar.

You will return around 00:30, giving you plenty of time to rejoice with the locals at the city's centre. You are only a few minutes walking distance from the notorious Icelandic night life which reaches new heights on New Year’s Eve!

Celebrate in style and welcome the New Year in Iceland on this incredible New Years Eve Firework Cruise. Check availability by choosing a date.

    We enjoyed this tour. We receivers an email the day of the tour to say that we were being moved to Soecial tours for the trip and found the boat quite easily at the harbour. We were given warm suits to pit over our own clothes to keep us warm up on deck and we watched the fireworks from out in the sea. Quite magical. We all had a glass of sparkling wine at midnight. It wa an expensive tour but well worth it. Boat was clean and the people on Baird very professional and we were in goood hands. We would recommend this tour at New Year to others.
