Gay Iceland New Year's TourYou haven’t lived until you’ve experienced Reykjavķk on New Year’s Eve. Pretty much everyone in the city takes a box of fireworks outside just before midnight to blow up the old year then party until dawn. There is nothing quite like it. There really isn’t. New Year’s in Iceland is the new ‘hot’ destination.

Coda Tours & Pink Iceland, Icelandic LGBT travel and event specialist, have created a six-night trip for a New Year’s celebration in Iceland. The trip combines 2 nights in the countryside where we will search for the Northern Lights and explore the beauty of the South Shore with some fun and exciting activities, like an ATV ride or snowmobile excursion. For those not wanting to participate in these activities, we will have time with our guide enjoying private touring from the bus.

Then we return to Reykjavik and visit some of Iceland’s most famous natural wonders, like the Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss, Thingvellir National Park and the famous Blue Lagoon.

We celebrate New Year’s in Iceland the Icelandic way with a bubbly bonfire tour, a house party and some late-night dancing followed by a relaxing dip in the Blue lagoon on the first day of the New Year.

But the centerpiece of our trip will be the Northern Lights Hunt. Although we cannot guarantee nature will cooperate, we have allotted four outings to increase our chances!

This is a special trip and a very special way to celebrate the New Year! Make bringing in 2019 a fabulous memory!

Geysir geothermal area is in South Iceland, near Laugarvatn Lake. The area is named after the biggest, and now mostly dormant, geyser Geysir and all geysers in the world owe their name to it. The biggest attraction today is the active Strokkur, which shoots up a column of water up to 30 metres (98 ft.) into the air every few minutes.

The UNESCO site THingvellir National Park is geologically and historically significant. Apart from being the location of the oldest parliament in the world, Alžingi, it is also a place where you can see the Mid-Atlantic ridge above ground. The Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates pull the country apart by a couple of centimeters per year. Lunch is included.

Trip Notes:

Weather & Packing
The temperatures in December/January average between low 30’s F in the day to low 20’s F in the night. The “midnight sun” averages 4-5 hours per day. But Iceland’s inexpensive geothermal energy means that streets and buildings are well-lit during winter darkness.

You will need a thermal jacket, long underwear, warm hat, gloves, scarf and other clothing suitable for winter weather. The tour is casual at all times and for New Year’s Eve, a festive, warm outfit will be appropriate.

International Airfare
You will need to book flights to and return from REYKJAVIK (KEF). Icelandic Air, WOW Air (from BOS & ORD) are the 2 carriers with direct flights from the USA. We recommend booking at least 7 months in advance if you want to use Frequent Flyer Miles or the American Express Platinum card 2-4-1 program.

Travel Documents
A valid passport is required for international travel and must be valid for 3 months after the return date. No visa is required for USA and Canada passport holders.

Minimums/Guarantees
All departures are guaranteed on a minimum number of participants. A Coda Tour Manager will accompany a tour also based on a minimum number of participants. This tour can be operated as a Private Tour, can be customized and repriced based on a final itinerary.
