The best of Iceland in
7 days / 6 nights
About Iceland’s new years eve
Iceland has become internationally famous for its intense, and firework-filled New Year’s Eve celebration. Icelanders spend a lot of money on fireworks each year, partly because they love the color display on New Year’s Eve, but also because they are supporting the Icelandic Rescue Teams that heavily rely on income based on fireworks and Christmas tree sales each year. People start shooting a couple of fireworks a couple of days before New Year’s Eve and continue until the 6th of January, but of course, most of them are shot around midnight on New Year’s Eve. Experience New Year with us and let us take you to the best spots to enjoy the show.
