The original Northern Lights by Boat tour in Iceland!
Hunting the northern lights from the ocean is an amazing experience; sailing away from the coastline of Reykjavik and seeing the aurora borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains and the city lights in the background is something you won't forget!
We sail out from the Old Harbour in Reykjavik and in only 15-20 minutes we will be in a prime location away from the city lights, perfect for viewing the auroras! The guide will share with you facts on the science behind this magical phenomenon that the Northern Lights are and tell you about the stories & myths from different cultures around the world. The tour takes about 2-2,5 hours depending on how early/late the lights might appear.
We recommend putting on our free overalls on-board that will keep you nice and warm out on the deck, listening to what the guide has to say about the lovely colours dancing in the sky.
Throughout the tour we show our very own original Northern Lights video, full of interesting facts and folklore! So if you are cold you can grab a drink at the bar and cozy up inside watching the video or just simply enjoy the view of the city lights in the distance with your friends/family.
What if the weather is not favourable?
BOOK THIS TOUR
Good to know
We always try our best to give our passengers the best possible chance to see the Northern Lights - however it is important to know that we can never guarantee sightings, this is a hunt for a natural phenomenon.
We use the weather forecast to find out the cloud cover on the night & the strength of the lights. We will always sail out when there is a chance of visibility as we do not want our passengers missing out on a chance to see the auroras.
We kindly ask you to be positive, embrace your patience and keep your fingers crossed!
