Imagine Peace Tower

The Imagine Peace Tower is a guided evening tour dedicated to Yoko Ono's and John Lennon's continuing campaign for world peace. This tour combines uniting history, nature and art.

The tour starts from the Old Harbor in Reykjavik and sails towards the magical world of Videy Island, a 20-minute boat ride, where we take a guided walk to the Imagine Peace Tower and learn about this magnificent work of art as well as the history and nature of the island. The view of Reykjavik by night is also not to be missed. With a little bit of luck, the northern lights might even appear overhead. The tower is lit each year on John Lennon’s birthday, October 9. It is a beacon of world peace that lights up the evening sky in Reykjavik through December 8, the day Lennon died. The tower is also lit from winter solstice to New Year and for one week from spring equinox as well as other select dates. The ever-changing weather conditions impact the strength, intensity and brilliance of the tower of light. 

Yoko Ono choose Iceland for her monument because the country is considered one of the most peaceful in the world and does not have an army. Videy also holds a prominent place in Icelandic history both as a cultural centre and as a centre of secular power.
