Join Harpa Yachts for an amazing evening yacht cruise to celebrate the new year and say ‘bon voyage’ to 2018!
This tour combines the amazing Northern Lights with the famous Reykjavík New Year’s Eve Fireworks show. On this 2,5 hours cruise we encounter many other interesting sights. We cruise along the beautiful coastline and enjoy the city lights from a different view! While you enjoy the clean ocean breeze and gaze at the starry night sky while we wait. When particles from the sun hit earth’s atmosphere it creates a bright light with colors fluctuating in hues of green to red to sometimes purple.
We get to see Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre from another angle. Along the coastline we see the art sculpture Sun Voyager, a dream boat and an ode to the sun and the famous house Höfði, where the agreement to end the Cold War was signed in 1986.
Our experienced crew will keep an eye out for the Aurora Borealis activity to find the best route, while you enjoy the scenery from the vast darkness behind the small island in Faxaflói bay. Among them is one of Iceland’s most famous Islands, Viðey, where the Imagine Peace Tower by Yoko Ono’s lights up the night sky from October 9th – December 8th and few other days.
On-board you will find information and educational multimedia about Iceland and the Northern Lights. The vessel is very stable and spacious which is convenient when taking photos. If it gets chilly you can wrap around you a warm blanket or purchase a hot beverage from our on-board shop & bar were we offer a selection of light refreshments. This deluxe cruise offers a more personal service and less crowded scenery with fewer passengers.
We recommend booking in advance, because we limit group size to enhance customer satisfaction.
