NORTHERN LIGHTS CRUISE

There are few things more Icelandic than the Northern Lights dancing above the Arctic Ocean. Through the centuries our fishermen have needed to go out fishing all year round, even in the long, dark winters. Fortunately for them, when the winter sky is clear they have had the very welcome company of the Northern Lights that illuminate the sky, making it easier to fish.

We set sail from the Old Reykjavík harbour and begin our hunt out on the dark blue waters of Faxaflói Bay, leaving behind the bright city lights of Reykjavík. With our long experience in reading the Northern Lights forecast and a bit of luck, we will hopefully be successful in our search for the Auroras. We will experience first hand how the lights constantly change in density, colour and movement with the gentle sway of the ocean beneath us. This is a thrilling and unique experience you will not soon forget.

Our open top viewing decks provide the perfect platform for witnessing the dazzling spectacle while our heated indoor lounge is a great place to take a break from the Icelandic winter and warm up in between sightings.

We recommend you come wearing warm clothes, however, if you don’t have any, we can also provide warm overalls.
