Winter Lights Festival


06.-09. February 2020

The Winter Lights Festival is an annual event that stimulates the city life in the midwinter. The Festival celebrates both the winter world and the growing light after a long period of darkness. The program is a mixture of art and industry, environment and history, sports and culture. The festival provides entertainment for Reykjavík’s locals and guests alike. 

Winter Lights Festival is an event to be enjoyed by all and all events are free of charge.  The programme reflects the many faces of Reykjavík. Together with all the major museums and thermal pools in the Reykjavík capital area, the Reykjavík Ski Resort will join in on the fun. There will also be a beautiful light installation that brightens up the city.
