It is dedicated to the memory of John Lennon.The IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is located on Viðey Island in Kollafjörður and it's light is well visible from Reykjavík city and the capital area. Every year the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER emerges an hour after sunset between 9 October (Lennon's day of birth) and 8 December (Lennon's demise). In addition the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER emerges for one week on winter solstice, on New Year's Eve, for one week during spring equinox and few other selected dates. The ever changing weather conditions play an interesting part to the strength, intensity and brilliance of the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER’S light. During it's lighting time guided tours are avaiable called the Imagine Peace Tour. The tour is dedicated to the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER and Lennon’s and Ono’s continuing campaign for world peace. It is run by Elding with departures from Reykjavík's Old harbour. The tour unites history, art and nature is an interesting way.

Now this "thing" is just AWESOME. You will have to be in Reykjavik over the winter time to see it but it sure is worth it. The story about it is a bit fascinating but the time that it is on is also perfect, and sad as well. Every year the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER emerges an hour after sunset between 9 October (Lennon's day of birth) and 8 December (Lennon's demise). In addition the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER emerges for one week on winter solstice, on New Year's Eve, for one week during spring equinox and few other selected dates. But it is the 2 Lennon dates that make it what it is.

I managed to convince a coach full of students it was the Northern Lights !
Still it gives the idea it is quite impressive. It can e seen from a long way off and its became a marker for us - see the lights, know you're near base camp.

Well worth taking a few minutes to look at and quietly think.

We were fortunate enough to see the Peace Tower illuminated on Feb. 18 (Ono's birthday). It was spectacular. We had high winds and rain, but the light shone into the evening and was truly inspirational!

This 'tower' will take you aback. The height of the beam is huge and, from afar looks beautiful! Worth seeing
