Duration: Approx. 4-5 hrs.
The tour commences at the fantastic, fresh and fun local restaurant RIO Reykjavík – a mere 5 minute walk from the city centre and about 50 metres from the Elding ticket office. The South American inspired restaurant has a hint of an Asian influence so the chefs can create even more exciting and tastier food. Choose 3 tacos to enjoy from the broad selection on the menu. Your table is typically booked 2 hours before your Imagine Peace tour departs.
After you’ve enjoyed your meal you can start heading down to Elding’s ticket office just around the corner to collect your ferry tickets.Our guide will meet you at our Visitor Centre which is facilitated on board an old fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier where you can view a video on the art piece narrated by Yoko Ono herself and finally hand in your ticket before hopping onboard the ferry that will take you over to the island where the Imagine Peace Tower is situated We set sails towards the magical world of Viðey Island, a mere 20-minute boat ride away, where we take a guided walk to the Imagine Peace Tower and learn about this magnificent work of art as well as the history and nature of the island. Lit each year on John Lennon’s birthday, October 9, the tower, a beacon of world peace, lights up the evening sky in Reykjavik through December 8, the day Lennon died. The tower is also lit from winter solstice to New Year and for one week from spring equinox as well as other select dates. The ever-changing weather conditions impact the strength, intensity and brilliance of the tower of light. The view of Reykjavik by night is also not to be missed and if you’re lucky, the northern lights might even appear overhead!
The tour provides great photo opportunities and a tripod is recommended for better camera stability.
