Full description
Enjoy a 2-hour tour dedicated to Yoko Ono and John Lennon’s campaign for world peace and see the Imagine Peace Tower on Viðey Island. The unique experience starts in Reykjavík's old harbor, where your captain and guide will welcome you onto the 20-minute ferry ride to Viðey Island. Then, enjoy a guided walk to the Tower, with interesting stops en route. Every year, from 9 October (Lennon’s birthday) through 8 December (the day of his death), the Imagine Peace Tower lights up the evening sky in Reykjavík. In addition, it emerges from the Winter Solstice to the New Year, for 1 week during the Spring Equinox, and on a few other selected dates. You will learn the story of this magnificent work of art, as well as the nature surrounding it. If you are lucky, the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) might make an appearance, shimmering in the night sky above you! The tour unites history, art and nature in an interesting way. The ever-changing weather conditions play an interesting part to the intensity and brilliance of the Tower, which Yoko hopes “will give encouragement, inspiration and a sense of solidarity in a world now filled with fear and confusion.”

The night of our visit was extremely windy with a lot of ice, but the guide was terrific! She was friendly and knowledgeable and made the night fun and enjoyable despite the weather conditions (went out of her way to help anyone and everyone who needed assistance).

A trip not to be missed. A great welcome of hot punch before boarding with Lennons music playing. A full tour of the island was conducted by a very experienced guide with time to spend around the Peace Tower and a cup of hot chocolate whilst writing out our wishes to be placed on the wishing tree. An experience that will be always remembered.

The Imagine Peace tour is a great way to end a day in Reykjavik. In addition to Yoko Ono's beautiful tribute to John Lennon, the island itself is rich in history, including having one of the oldest churches in Iceland. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. And if you're seeking the Northern Lights, if they're active, you can see them from the water on the ferry. I really enjoyed this tour!
