The Imagine Peace Tower is an outdoor work of art on the Island of Viðey, conceived by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon. The piece consists of a white stone monument, with the words ‘Imagine Peace’ carved into it in 24 languages, and a tall tower of light that on a clear night reaches an altitude of 4000 metres. The tower was named after Lennon’s famous peace anthem, Imagine. Buried underneath the tower are over half a million written wishes gathered by Ono.
The tower is lit every year from 9th October, Lennon’s birthday, through to 8th December, the date he was shot. Additionally, the tower is lit during a limited number of dates such as spring equinox. Iceland was selected for the project because of its unmatched beauty and use of eco-friendly energy.
Seeing the tower lit up, with a pillar of light slicing through the dark sky, is an evocative experience.
If you opt for hotel pick up and drop off, you will be picked up from your hotel 45 minutes before the start time of the tour. Alternatively, you can opt out of this service and make your way to Reykjavík's Old Harbour at Ægisgarður 5, 101 Reykjavík to meet your guide.
Board the ferry to the beautiful Island of Videy, where the Imagine Peace Tower is located. The island features some of the most wonderful landscapes in the area, with unspoilt nature to feast your eyes on. Your guide will explain the significance of the monument, built as a memorial of John Lennon and his ideals. The group size is kept small which means you’ll get to interact with you guide and have all your questions answered.
After visiting the evocative Peace Tower, you will head back on the ferry to Reykjavik. You will either be dropped off at your hotel or you can make your own way back, depending on your choice.
