Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of the Aurora Borealis, commonly known as the Northern Lights, a celestial masterpiece that captivates the imagination. This extraordinary natural phenomenon unfolds when solar particles collide with the Earth’s atmosphere, creating a luminous spectacle that paints the night sky in mesmerizing hues of green, red, and sometimes even purple – an experience that is truly unforgettable.

Embark on our exclusive 2-2.5 hour Northern Lights tour, a quest enhanced by a plethora of intriguing sights. Cruise along the captivating coastline, offering a unique perspective on city lights while awaiting the breathtaking Northern Lights display. Our primary focus is on this awe-inspiring natural wonder, yet you can also relish the crisp ocean breeze and marvel at the star-studded night sky during the anticipation.

As we navigate the coastline, enjoy fresh vantage points of iconic landmarks such as the Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall & Conference Centre, the art sculpture Sun Voyager, and the historic Höfði house – the site of the 1986 Cold War-ending agreement.

Our experienced crew diligently monitors Aurora Borealis activity, ensuring the best route for optimal viewing amid the darkness of Faxa Bay (Faxaflói) and its surrounding islands, including Viðey, home to Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower illuminating the night sky from October 9th to December 8th and select other days.

Should the chill set in, cozy blankets are provided, and our onboard shop offers a selection of hot beverages and light refreshments.
