New Years Firework Cruise

Get the best view of the famous fireworks and enjoy a glass of Champagne to toast as the clock strikes midnight. You will sail away with Special Tours from Reykjavik´s Old Harbour in the City Centre for an amazing spectacle cruise of Reykjavik and Reykjavik´s World Legendary Fireworks Display!  

Our luxury comfort vessel leaves the harbor at 11 pm and will be back in the harbor about half an hour after midnight. Looking at the city from the sea will give you the chance to see ALL the fireworks over Reykjavik. You will receive a complimentary glass of Champagne as midnight approaches and, as the clock hits 12, raise a toast to the New Year.   

You can chose from a spot in our cozy indoor saloon or stay on our open-air deck. Then, enjoy the views over the glittering lights of Iceland's capital as your boat cruises out into Faxaflói Bay.
