I spent new years at my friend Tinna's house in Kopavogur (Reykjavik) in Iceland. She's got such an amazing view over the whole greater Reykjavik area, the video doesn't do it justice.
The fireworks start at about 23.30 and go on for an hour with full force. You then continue to see the odd firework shoot up all through the night. Rekjavík is definitely the best place to be when the clock strikes newyars.
