Imagine Peace Tower in October

What's On Magazine - October 2013

13OktWe have an issue completely packed with content this month. Why? Well, there‘s just so much happening.

We decided to include a 10 page chapter dedicated to Iceland Airwaves, which starts in late October. There you can find numerous tips and tricks as well as some suggestion on what to see, what to do and where to be. We‘re super excited about Airwaves and hope we can get all of you on board with us!

But that‘s not all. On the cover we have the Imagine Peace Tower in October a visually stunning work of art by Yoko Ono, dedicated to the memory of John Lennon. On his birthday, the 9th of October every year, the tower is lit for little under two months, creating an incredible spectacle visible all over Reykjavik. The words IMAGINE PEACE are inscribed in 24 languages on the well surrounding the tower. We‘d definitely recommend a visit to Viðey Island just to experience this powerful artwork up close.

October marks the beginning of the real winter – so embrace yourself for precarious weather, some pretty impressive northern lights and ever lengthening nights. October is a great month for a cup of coffee or a warm soup. Luckily there are plenty of places in Reykjavik that offer great soups.

Now don‘t forget our instagram hashtag #WhatsonRvk – this month we selected the winner of our competition, so make sure you check that out. We‘d love to keep getting pictures though, so go ahead and share your favorite moments from your Iceland trip!

Have a great time in Iceland!
