Owner description: The IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is a work of art conceived by the legendary artist and peace advocate Yoko Ono as a beacon to world peace. It is dedicated to the memory of John Lennon.The IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is located on Viðey Island in Kollafjörður and it's light is well visible from Reykjavík city and the capital area. Every year the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER emerges an hour after sunset between 9 October (Lennon's day of birth) and 8 December (Lennon's demise). In addition the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER emerges for one week on winter solstice, on New Year's Eve, for one week during spring equinox and few other selected dates. The ever changing weather conditions play an interesting part to the strength, intensity and brilliance of the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER’S light. During it's lighting time guided tours are avaiable called the Imagine Peace Tour. The tour is dedicated to the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER and Lennon’s and Ono’s continuing campaign for world peace. It is run by Elding with departures from Reykjavík's Old harbour. The tour unites history, art and nature is an interesting way.

“Nice but I'd love to see it when it is illuminated!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This was interesting to see on our visit to Videy Island but I would love to see it at the times of the year when it is lit up.

Dear katy c,

Thank you for visiting Videy island and sharing your experience. Although it's nice to see the wishing well the light shines from we agree that seeing the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER at the time it's lit is even better. This was though always inherit in the original idea(s) from 1960s"...The light house may not emerge every day, just as the sun doesn’t shine every day."

Kind regards the Viðey and Elding team

“All,white small water tank art piece with inscriptions and lights at night”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Videy Island is 1/2 mile from shore, just,off,downtown, we walked to the ferry dock, then ate at the wonderful little,restaurant when one gets off the ferry (waffles only the day we were there, delicious), then walked all over the west island with the Cerr large sculptures. Barren, interesting, great hike. Fun way to spend an afternoon. The Peace Tower was just one of several brief stops as one hikes around and is worth a visit to read the inscriptions and feel,the moment.

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We saw the light when travelling to see the Northern Lights. It is fantastic that it isn't on all year round so that it can be really enjoyed. It is a great sight and allows you to reflect.
