At midnight, the capital of Iceland is lit with countless fireworks. Magical New Year's displays may be admired from any corner of the city. Yet, one of the most convenient locations to enjoy the glittering beauty is from the depth of Faxaflói Bay.

Comfortable vessels head out into the bay right on the New Year's Eve; they depart from Reykjavik's Old Harbor approximately an hour before the countdown.
