Experience peace on Earth and join this tour that includes a ferry ride to Viðey Island and a dinner at a local restaurant. If you want to behold Iceland's famous Imagine Peace Tower up close and indulge in local cuisine, this excursion is for you. 

A guide will meet you down at the Visitor Centre, which is facilitated onboard an old fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier of Reykjavík's Old Harbour. The cruise departs as soon as everyone is ready for departure and takes you into the magnificent and peaceful area of Viðey Island.

After docking, the guided walking tour starts by climbing the stairs or walking the steep hill up to the top of the island. Learn about the island’s history, art and nature until you get to the Imagine Peace Tower.

The tower is lit each year to commemorate John Lennon’s birthday, October 9. The column then lights up Reykjavík's evening sky through December 8, the day of Lennon’s demise. It is also lit on Winter Solstice through New Year’s Eve and for one week near the Spring Equinox.

The ever-changing weather conditions impact the strength, intensity and brilliance of the light beam generated by the tower. The view of Reykjavík by night is also not to be missed. If it's the correct season and with a little bit of luck, the Northern Lights might even appear overhead.

Your meal is typically booked a couple of hours before the tour starts. You have the option to choose between salmon, cod or nut roast, along with one side dish. After you have finished your meal, we suggest you head down to the ticket office, located in the same harbour as the restaurant, and collect your Imagine Peace tour tickets.

Enjoy a great meal and see this sparkling bright light piercing the Icelandic darkness for yourself. Check availability by choosing a date.
