Enjoy a fireworks show like no other by luxury yacht from Reykjavik’s Old Harbor for a New Years’ Eve you’ll never forget. Those looking for a fantastic festive evening and an excellent way to start the new year will find no better experience.
This annual excursion starts when you head to the Amelia Rose for 22:30, a beautiful, modern vessel with spacious outdoor decks and comfortable indoor rooms. You can either find it yourself very close to the downtown area or arrange pickup from your local hotel. Onboard, you’ll find a cafe/bar, free Wifi, seasickness tablets, and bathrooms, as well as blankets and overalls so you can enjoy the show without worrying about the cold.
You’ll also be provided with a complimentary glass of champagne or a non-alcoholic alternative to celebrate the event!
New Years’ Eve in Iceland is a truly unique and spectacular night. Throughout November and December, many city residents buy fireworks (proceeds of which go to the Rescue Team), and there are displays across the city. As the clock strikes midnight, these are released on the whims of their owner, creating a magnificent, random show that lasts for hours and fills the sky with color.
The only downside of coming to Iceland to see this show is that the best viewing spots become quickly filled, the public areas become very crowded, and there is an element of danger on the streets. All of these problems are avoided when you elect to see the fireworks from the sea!
Furthermore, there will be no chance of seeing the auroras in the city tonight with the amount of smoke and light, but you still might be able to by looking out to the ocean.
After several hours on the water and a magnificent display of Icelandic festive character, you’ll return to the harbor to start the New Year fresh.
See out one year and welcome another in the most exhilarating, luxurious way possible on this yacht tour from Reykjavik. Check availability by choosing a date.
All guests are recommended to dress warmly in multiple layers and good footwear as it is always colder on the water. Don’t forget your camera!
