Have a magical experience on a Northern Lights Boat Tour from Reykjavík Harbour. Witness the beautiful Aurora Borealis far away from the bright city lights on this smooth boat ride. This highly recommended trip provides you with a unique way to experience the dancing Northern Lights.

On the evening of your trip, head to the Old Harbour in Reykjavik, where you will find the boat and your captain. After introductions, you´ll board the vessel and set sail onto Faxaflói Bay in search of beautiful green, white, and pink lights.

The Northern Lights are natural phenomena that only appear when the weather conditions are right. So you need clear skies and complete darkness to witness this stunning celestial display. Thankfully, out on the ocean, you can find both.

The boat will take you far away from the bright lights of Reykjavík to a spot where the skies are clear of clouds. There, you´ll see ribbons of green, white, or pink dance in the sky above you.

Make sure you bring a camera to capture this stunning display. The crew on board are experts in photographing the Northern Lights, and they´ll be on hand to help you find the perfect setting on your camera. They´ll also take photos themselves which you can receive in an email after the trip if you wish.

The crew will also provide fun facts about this natural, astronomical phenomenon. And they´ll be ready to answer any question you might have.

The boat has a 360° viewing platform for panoramic views and a heated indoor area with a café and bathrooms. This means that if you get cold, you can go inside and warm up with a cup of hot chocolate. There are also warm overalls on board which you can use.

Experience the beauty of the Northern Lights on a secluded boat tour. Book now to secure your spot on this popular trip.
