Know More about this tour

Hop aboard your boat at Reykjavik Old Harbour, and cruise toward Videy Island with your guide. Roughly 20 minutes away from the buzz of Icelands capital, the island is a haven of tranquillity with unspoiled countryside, ancient ruins and the thought-provoking Imagine Peace Tower.

At the Videy Island port, put on your provided crampons and spotlight to help you ramble over the rugged terrain in the dark. Then, follow your guide and learn about the island and its intriguing beam of light as you walk. The feature was created by Yoko Ono to be a symbol of world peace and a memorial to her late husband John Lennon, and is essentially a geothermal light display projected onto a white stone monument.

Your time at the Imagine Peace Tower starts with a short video narration by Yoko Ono. With her thoughts fresh in your mind, gaze out toward Reykjavik, and admire the glow that the artwork casts over the city. If you wish, write your own message for peace in the world, and drop it into the well at the foot of the site.

When the time comes, warm yourself with a hot drink at a nearby cafe, and then return to the port with your guide. Board your boat, and cruise back to Reykjavik Old Harbour where your experience finishes.

  • This was great made even beter by our french guide that spoke perfect English

  • We had a great time! Our guide, Sila, was very informative, friendly, and knowledgeable. The weather was not cooperative but we made the best of it. We were very lucky to have a small group only 4 people and our guide, boat captain, and transportation crew member. We couldn't have asked for a better group. The Tower is beautiful! I found that this tour is not widely known in travel brochures and websites, but I found it and will recommend to anyone going to Reykjavik. It's a lovely tribute to John Lennon.

  • The tower was great to see but the tour could have been better organized. Also there was quite a bit of walking in dark unsteady places and that was never explained in the tour description.
    We had a wonderful bonus on our ferry ride back from the Island..........we saw the Northern Lights!!! Two tours in one!

  • Beautiful! The snow made the light even more amazing. Can't wait to see Videy Island again!

  • The guys from Elding whale watching could not have been more helpful and friendly. Very knowledgeable about the subject. Thoroughly enjoyable trip and I would recommend using this company

  • Amazing experience and recommended for any John Lennon fan or anyone who appreciates a beautiful art installation set in one of the most beautiful environments in the world.

  • We enjoyed the Image peace tower tour from Reykjavik, we were made to feel welcome and the guide was very informative and friendly.
