Meet us at our ticket officeby the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík, where you will exchange your pre-paid voucher for boarding tickets. A few steps down the pier, you will board the ferry that takes you to the serene island of Viðey. On this 2 hr. guided walking tour, you will learn all about the Imagine Peace Tower, the island's important trading history, artwork and nature. The Reykjavík skyline and its surrounding area is not to be missed and if lucky, you might even get a chance to see the northern lights appear overhead!
The tower is illuminated 1 hr. after sunset until midnight from 9 October until 8 December (John Lennon's birthday and day of demise). From Winter Solstice the beam can be seen lighting up the night sky into the morning of a New Year, as well as on Yoko Ono's birthday and in the week of Spring Equinox. The ever-changing weather conditions on the island impact the strength, intensity and brilliance of the tower.
Yoko Ono chose Iceland to host the monument as it does not have an army and is considered one of the most peaceful countries in the world. The country's use of geothermal energy played a big part too as the tower is powered by sustainable resources.
Watch a live stream of the Imagine Peace Tower on Viðey island as seen from Skarfabakki pier in Reykjavík.
