Lighting of the Oslo Christmas Tree

3 December 2017

For decades the lighting of the Oslo Christmas tree has marked the beginning of our Christmas preparations in the city.

It has its place in the hearts of the people of Reykjavík, who gather each year to enjoy both the spirit of Christmas and each others company.

This year’s event will take place on Sunday, 3 December between 15:30 and 17:00 at Austurvöllur. A few of the Yule Lads will show up too!

For a different kind of yuletide illumination, press here for a marketplace of Northern Lights tours!
