The waterfalls are an awe-inspiring natural phenomenon and no visit to Iceland would be complete without seeing them. There is also an excellent shop at the site with a wide selection of clothing and gifts.

The ferry to the island seemed pretty expensive, and Beware the few buildings that are there are completely closed in the winter! But the views were spectacular and the Imagine Peace monument (Yoko Ono's tribute to John Lennon) was beautiful. Watch out for the wind and the cold; it was easily 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) colder and 3x windier than in... More

We took the first Saturday ferry (1315) and spent just under two hours on the island. We took a taxi to the ticket office (not sure if there is any other way) and easily bought ticket about 20 minutes before boarding. The day was off to a great start as rain subsided a beautiful rainbow greeted us as we set... More

We had an off day in between our guided tours from reykjavik. So we decided to spend some time in videy island. We also saw some pictures about the peace tower, but we thought it would be operational every night. Actually there are specific timings and days in which the light shall be lit. There is a ferry service which... More

I went and visited the island at night for the Imagine Peace Tower tour with Elding. This was such a special time. There were only 5 of us on the island including the tour guide and the boat captain. There are a couple of buildings, a church, a graveyard, two homes, and amazing views of Reyjkavik at night!

When I was in Iceland I was there just by accident on the day that Yoko Ono came to light the Imagine Peace tower in John Lennon's Honor. I was there during the day and into the evening and it is such a fantastic little island! Even if you're not there for the lighting ceremony, I highly recommend going and... More

I love this island for it's tranquility, peaceful atmosphere, open air and the peace column that Yoko Uno placed there in memory of John Lennon and is lit up during winter. If you are looking for a place to get married or propose, this might be a perfect spot! :)

Took the 5 minute ferry ride over to Videy Island on a chilly/rainy Sunday afternoon. The island is wild and beautiful.....a great spot for an easy and interesting hike. After circling the island, observing the Peace Tower, the " Anchor" memorial and all the beautiful nature, we enjoyed a delightful apple cake and hot tea in the cafe. Afterwards,we caught... More
