The Winter Lights Festival (1 – 4 February 2018) is an annual event held in Reykjavík, Iceland, that stimulates the city life in the midwinter.
The Festival celebrates both the winter world and the growing light after a long period of darkness.
The program is a mixture of art and industry, environment and history, sports and culture. The festival provides entertainment for Reykjavík’s locals and guests alike.
Winter Lights Festival is an event to be enjoyed by all and all events are free of charge. The programme reflects the many faces of Reykjavík.
Together with all the major museums and thermal pools in the Reykjavík capital area, the Reykjavík Ski Resort will join in on the fun. There will also be a beautiful light installation that brightens up the city.
You can also enjoy thermal hot water during freezing temperature. The best-known of all Iceland’s thermal complexes is the Blue Lagoon close to Reykjavík.
