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

Nice little ferry ride from the city, good views. Nothing much on the island really. Good to take a picnic to on a warm sunny day and sit on the beach. Otherwise would not bother.

I stumbled upon on Videy 2 years ago when we visited Reykjavik and went for a long walk. We took the day ferry over at a very reasonable price and I discovered the Imagine Peace tower. Although the history of the island was also fantastic I wanted to see the tower lit and was not disappointed to go back this... More

This was a fun place! When we arrived after the boat let us out, we looked at the map. We noticed that there were some bikes available for free. As usual, when something is free, it doesn’t mean these bikes are perfectly fine! My bike couldn’t brake. I had to use my feet to stop the bike. My wife had... More

This is a great day trip, right in town. Despite a tad of wetness we had a great hike across and around island. We saw ( and got dive-bombed) by arctic terns. It helps you understand the difficulties of life in the earlier eras of Reykjavik.

I waited ten years to visit Videy island - until I retired - in order to visit it on October 9, John Lennon's birthday. It's on his birthday that his wife's sculpture, the Imagine Peace Tower, is lit for the world to see. This beautiful, peaceful tower of light, which can be seen from outer space, is kept lit each...
