New Years Eve in Iceland

New Year’s Eve in Iceland is a nothing less than a magical experience. There are no official firework displays in the city on that night because anyone can shoot fireworks on New Years Eve in Iceland. Usually families and friends gather together and shoot fireworks and have fun.

The result is an amazing display of fire in the sky all over the the capital, Reykjavík, created by the approximately 200.000 people of the city, who just before midnight set off around 500 tons of fireworks.

For an hour the city was completely lit up by fireworks and on this New Years Eve we were lucky enough to also witness the bright dancing Northern Lights.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to ride trough the air like a witch on such a night! One could try this magical stave is from the book Sorcerer's Screed next New Years Eve ...

Happy new year to all of our readers!
