New Year’s Eve Luxury Yacht Cruise

Enjoy the unique New Year’s Eve Firework Cruise and maybe a glimp of the northern lights if we are lucky.

The fireworks on New Year’s Eve in Reykjavik are a spectacular sight, when each and every family put on their own firework show. Now you can view the fireworks from the ocean with a great view to the city.

We start with relaxing sailing and maybe we will spot the northern lights before the fireworks show starts at midnight, where thousands of Icelanders say bon voyage to the old year and welcome the new one.

On this approximately 2.5 hour tour we encounter many other interesting sights. We cruise along the beautiful coastline and enjoy the city lights from a different view!
