Celebrating the New Year in Iceland

In preparation for Reykjavik's world class New Year's celebration, we wanted to give our family a taste of the fireworks experience. We met a group of volunteers from Iceland's Search and Rescue team and bought our supply of fireworks. It was a fun evening that started off with the bonfire at Ægisiða, followed by brief stops at the Pearl, and a drive around the city. Midnight was spectacular as the entire city lit up with magnificent fireworks displays. It has been a few years since we've had so much fun on New Year's Eve.
