New Year's Eve Bonfires

New Year's Eve Bonfires
Bonfire
On new year's eve Icelanders light up the sky with fireworks but we also light bonfires and celebrate around the bonfire to welcome the new year. Four bonfire celebrations will take place in the Reykjanes Peninsula on new year's eve, the 31st of December.
 
In Grindavík the bonfire will be at Bót, just outside Grindavík (see on a map). The bonfire will be lit at 20:30.

In Garður the bonfire will be next to the football stadium (see on a map). The bonfire will be lit at 20:30.
A firework show will then start at 21:00 at the same location.
 
In Sandgerði the bonfire will start at 20:00 at Sjávarbraut (see on a map).

In Vogar the bonfire will be north of the football stadium (see on a map). The bonfire will be lit at 20:00.
 
Have a spectacular new year's in Iceland!

The Reykjanes Peninsula

Towns & Villages

Visitors to Iceland who arrive via Keflavik International Airport on the Reykjanes Peninsula may be somewhat surprised by the landscape that greets their eyes as they touch down in Iceland for the very first time. A seemingly endless, green-grey moss-topped lava field blankets the peninsula for as far as the eye can see, and it is this strange and rather other-worldly sight that is your first glimpse of the land of fire and ice.
