Great experience and saw the Aurora borealis!
Nov 2019
As a huge fan of John Lennon, I had an incredible time visiting the Imagine Peace Tower that Yoko Ono created as a homage to him and his advocacy for peace. It was definitely freezing cold when I went, but worth every minute of it. Our tour guide, wish I could remember her name, was really nice and she played us a couple of John Lennon's songs while we were there so it made it that much better. What truly made it special was that it was an intimate trip only my friend and I and another person, also I was not expecting to see the Aurora borealis, but our tour guide pointed it out and it was magnificent. I felt really lucky to have been able to see it there and then because it made my visit to the Imagine Peace Tower that much more special and sentimental.

One of a kind experience
Oct 2019
Knowledgeable guide gave us a memorable evening at the peace tower; she gave detailed information on both Videy Island and the history of the tower. Seeing the lighted tower up close was more than special; our guide even played "Imagine" on her phone while we savored the moment. A hot chocolate snack and a quick visit to the church on the island completed the evening. Elding was great to work with too. This is a don't miss attractiion.

A unique situation
Oct 2019 • Couples
Memorable and moving. A very unique situation in an already unique part of the world. Effective close up or from a distance on the mainland, it also operates as an idea gifted to the world at large.

best night of our trip
Oct 2019
the night got off to a wobbly start when we were told the boat trip would have to be from a different place because of the weather - but safety first and in the end it had no bearing on the evening which was amazing
25.10.19 - we had an incredible sighting of the lights - our first time - awe inspiring
the guide was lovely - ready to answer any questions but also happy to be quiet and just let us take it all in
we only had phones to take photos on and whilst we were happy with the ones we got we were delighted that our guide was happy to share her photos by email the next day
the peace tower was lovely to but paled into insignificance a little after the excitement of the lights

Imagine Peace Memorial

I am a huge John Lennon Fan so to see the memorial lit up (Oct 9th-Dec 8th) was amazing. The beauty of its simplicity for me was emotional. So glad I was able to go.

Magical evening
Nov 2017 • Friends
I took a ferry out to Videy Island one evening in November to see the Peace Tower. I had read a bit about it but to see it that tower of light in the dead of night in the snow was breathtaking. Our guide was very welcoming and knowledgeable, explaining the history of the island itself and the background of the Peace Tower. We were shown the church on the island and allowed to go inside. After spending time at the tower, the Northern Lights appeared! Our guide took the time to help people set cameras to the right settings to get the best pictures. We were allowed to spend as much time as we needed and then treated us to hot chocolate and the opportunity to write our wish and tie it onto the Peace tree. A wonderful experience that you just can’t get anywhere else.

Perfect way to spend the last night in Iceland
Dec 2017 • Couples
We really enjoyed this tour, very informative and interesting. Our guide offered us the chance to stay in the Island as long as we liked rather than just for the desired time as there were only a few of us. I liked how it was based around the whole of Videy Island and offered us lots of information around that as well as the Peace Tower. Made our last night in Iceland really special and it was a great spot to see the Northern Lights.
