I'm a solo traveler going to Iceland for 5 days in Iceland between Christmas and New Year.
What would you recommend for New Year's Eve? What do people do there to celebrate? Any fireworks? Anything to avoid?
After the trip: people gather in front of the Cathedral and around Harpa. The grotta is also a good place to see the fireworks all around the city. There are a few bonfires too. People start the fireworks around 8.30 til 22.30. THen they watch a TV show. Then at 23.30 they start again until midnight. Lots of action on the main street. almost 3 years ago
