Imagine Peace Tour
The Imagine Peace Tour is a guided evening tour dedicated to Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower and Lennon’s and Ono’s continuing campaign for world peace. It starts with hotel pick up, a ferry ride to Viðey island, a guided walk towards the Imagine Peace Tower with interesting stop overs on the way. The tour unites history, art and nature in an interesting way and the ever changing weather conditions play an interesting part to the strength, intensity and brilliance of the Imagine Peace Tower's light.
Every year the Imagine Peace Tower lights up the evening sky in Reykjavík from October 9th (Lennon’s day of birth) through December 8th (Lennon’s demise). In addition the Imagine Peace Tower emerges from winter solstice to the New Year, for one week during spring equinox and few other selected dates.
We start the tour at Ægisgarður in Reykjavík’s old harbour. The sailing to Viðey island takes about 20 minutes and then our guide will walk with you to the Imagine Peace Tower where you will learn about this magnificent work of art as well as the history and nature surrounding it. If you are lucky the Northern lights might appear shimmering above you!
