Iceland wins NYE for all time! We were picked up by a mini coach and dropped off a few minutes later at the Gray Line headquarters to check in and then load a large motorcoach. We had a fantastic guide and who gave us the itinerary as we made our way to a large community bonfire. Dress WARM! My toes were freezing at times and I had on silk liners, 2 pairs of wool socks, and snow boots! The bonfire had hundreds of people, a fun band, and there was a big fireworks display. The Northern Lights also made an appearance for 10 minutes! We were then taken to the Gray Line bus depot where they set up a party with some donut like things, coffee, hot chocolate and water. They mentioned it was the first year they were doing this. There were 750 of us just standing around listening to just okay music. There were portable restrooms clean and stocked! to use during this stopover. It's necessary, but a little boring so just prepare! Then the fun happens! We were taken to a top point in the city for an hour where you get out, enjoy a glass of sparkling wine, and just take in hundred and hundreds of fireworks displays going on at the same time all over the city for as far as the eye can see! There is NOTHING like this anywhere I've been and it's surreal. Iceland doesn't do one big fireworks display. Everyone usually just buys fireworks from the local rescue squads as a way of supporting them and then after a nationally televised broadcast, everyone goes back outside and enjoys fireworks. I HIGHLY recommend everyone going to Iceland during New Years Eve and checking this out! Bucket list item for sure!

It was an awesome trip. The staff was really nice and did their best to show us the best places to see the fireworks. The bonfire was also really great.
I would definitely recommend this trip.

Must do!!! Fireworks are super. Tour takes you around at the right times so you can enjoy bonfire, have a lil relaxation and then off to see the midnight fireworks in a great location.

I have to admit. When we first started this trip we was a little persuaded to leave, the first bonfire with the live band playing was so nice. It was nice to see the traditional side to Icelandic people. But what let it down was the long wait in the hotel grand for everyone to finish watching their traditional comedy show, which felt like forever. But we waited to see what happened. The guide took us to a high piece of land to view the fireworks. IT WAS AMAZING. I have never seen anything like it, here in England we have fireworks for around 5 mins and you have had enough but thats all we get. In Iceland I witnessed around 200 fireworks at the sometime for about an hour..I was in awe. I had never seen anything like it and I dont think I will again, not like that. It was incredible. If you are doing this trip and you find it a little boring at first I do advise to just hold on and wait.. its worth the wait, I still havent got over the images in my head due to the fact my camera couldnt take a photo due to it being that bright :

What a great night we would never have seen what we saw if hadn't been on the trip - totally recommend it to anyone in Iceland on New Year's Eve

Was a great way to experience a more traditional new year. Lovely bonfire. Going to higher ground meant that you got a really good view over Reykjavik as the fireworks went off.
Staff on our bus were great, lovely complimentary glass or 2 of new year bubbles.
Stop at the main Grayline bus depot was the one thing we felt the trip didn't need. Big queues and no hot chocolate as it had all gone. Would still recommend this trip though.

This was a good tour, although there was a great deal of ice on the ground. New Year's Eve is a spectacular time in Reykjavik.

Fun evening. Going to the hotel for coffee was okay - but very crowded, not prepared adequately for the number of people, and too long.

This was a very interesting tour and we enjoyed. However, it was a very confusing pick-up, as there was nothing saying "Viator" and there were tons of buses. I think this is a MUST for tourists in Reykjavik on New Year's Eve.

Mostly excellent except the coffee break at the Grand Hotel. There were too many people there, not enough seats, the coffee was cold and there were no cakes or nibbles as we were told there should be. The coach driver and tour guide were superb as were the fireworks.

I liked the midnight fireworks throughout the city far better, but this is a nice beforehand thing to do if you're looking for something to do in the meantime.

We were unsure how to spend New Years Eve so booked this tour. Initially the company forgot to pick us up at the hotel so always worth confirming they have you on the list but they came back. The bonfire is impressive and a nice way to start the evening with a small firework display at the end. You then go back to a hotel in Reykjavik for coffee which is chaos. They need to get this right as it was difficult to get a cup, only the early few managed to get biscuits and there no where to sit. After this we went down town to a hill to view the fireworks. Nice view, not too crowded and great to see the locals setting off their fireworks. The glass of cava on the coach a nice touch. Not knowing what to do this certainly helped but if you know where to go in town to get the view you can do this yourself without the cost

For what it cost, this tour really wasn't worth it. I was shuttled to a bonfire party which was cool, then to a crowded hotel lobby where there was nothing to do except fight my way to a free cup of coffee and bare snack trays, and then to a park that was down the street from my hotel to watch the fireworks. If you're able to find your own way to a bonfire, then I'd recommend not doing this tour, there was really no value added from the operators.
