Re: New Year advice....? (Help needed)
Hi Simon, first I would recommend to take a whole day to go what is called the golden circle. That tour will take you to Þingvellir, Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir. Northern lights are normally best viewed between 22:00 - 02:00 local time and you need a warm cloths because it gets really cold over the night.
Now, what to do on New years eve... well it depends but I highly recommend that you see bonfire which are normally located on same places year after year. Can see map here " dev.innri.reykjavik.is/Porta... " for last year bonfires around Reykjavík. Normally they starts around 20:00 local time.
People starts firing up their fireworks around 23:00 but the real show starts 00:00 when the sky will be covered with fireworks! Best viewpoints are Perlan or being in Breiðholt at a good place, most drivers know good spots for viewing the firework show.
Please feel free to contact my directly if you want. :)
