Iceland is an increasingly popular destination to ring in the New Year. When the sun sets around 4 p.m., visitors in Reykjavik bide their time while locals enjoy neighborhood bonfires and an annual comedy show on TV. Come midnight, though, Iceland's capital explodes with 500 tons of fireworks. If you're lucky, the Northern Lights will blaze above the city, too. To make up for the late start, bars and clubs beckon until the early morning hours.
