Day 2 NEW YEARS EVE (B, D) December 31
Breakfast at your hotel. Explore Reykjavik with a local guide and learn about special traditions and Icelandic folklore related to the magical New Year's Eve in Iceland.

The first stop is to purchase fireworks, which are sold through the Icelandic Rescue Teams. Each year on December 31st, Icelanders light up over 600 tons of fireworks - that-s nearly 5 lbs (2 kg) per inhabitant!

Next, take part in an Icelandic tradition and visit the Old Reykjavik Cemetery. Hear about this tradition's origins with the mysterious tale of the graveyard caretaker-- and why the dead rise from their graves on New Year's Eve.

Then it's off to Hafnarfjordur, "The Town in t"e Lava" famous for its elf population. Visit an elf stone, but keep in mind that the mystical "hidden people" roam freely on New Year's Eve!
The excursion ends in a beautiful clearing where your group will light a small bonfire, enjoy a toast to life and love and say farewell to the passing year in traditional Icelandic fashion!
(Note: Tour is conducted in English)

In the evening, delight in a New Year's Eve dinner artistically prepared and made from fresh local ingredients straight from Icelandic farmers and greenhouses and the neighboring ocean. Indulge yourself in various artisanal starters, hearty entrées and endless tasty desserts.

Fireworks are lit all night long, reaching a high point at midnight, when the sky lights up for a few minutes as fire trucks and docked ships ring their bells and blow their horns to welcome the New Year.

After midnight, the nightclubs and pubs are open for business and the downtown area becomes a veritable catwalk of Icelanders outfitted in their finest holiday glitz, with dancing and celebrations going well into the morning. The biggest party night in a city renowned for its nightlife, the New Year's Eve celebration in Reykjavik is the stuff of legends.
