Iceland’s Winter Lights Festival is an annual event that celebrates both the winter season and the growing sunlight after a long period of darkness in the country. The program reflects the many areas that make up Reykjavík’s capital area with the participation of all the major museums and thermal pools and consists of light installations, culture and outdoor activities. This year’s festival takes place from February 4-7.
Although COVID-19 related restrictions will prevent events such as Museum Night and Swimming Pool Night from taking place, this year’s festival will focus on outdoor art and impressive light installations.
Each night during the festival, light shows will be illuminated from 7-10pm. Visitors are invited to take a walk around the city center and experience the dazzling light installations. You can find a map of all of the installations here.
