Aurora Borealis or the northern lights are in our mind one of the most natural phenomenons there are. 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, a sight you will never forget.
On this approximately 2-2.5 hour tour we encounter many other interesting sights. We cruise along the beautiful coastline and enjoy the city lights from a different view! While our main goal in this tour is to see the Northern Lights we can enjoy the clean ocean breeze and gaze at the starry night sky while we wait.
We get to see Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall & 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 islands in Faxa bay (Faxaflói). Among them is one of Iceland’s most famous Islands, Viðey where the Imagine Peace Tower by Yoko Ono lights up the night sky from October 9th – December 8th and a few other days.
If it gets chilly you can wrap around you a warm blanket or purchase a hot beverage from our onboard shop where we offer a selection of light refreshments.

This deluxe cruise offers a more personal service and less crowded scenery with fewer passengers. In our tours we use two yachts, MY Harpa with interior refitted 2019 (35 passengers) and MY Amelia, old style, but very nice interior (95 passengers). Both yachts have good outside areas to view the northern lights.
We recommend booking in advance, because we limit group sizes to enhance customer satisfaction.
