Private Northern Lights Yacht Cruise




2-3 hours


Sept. - April

Enjoy the glorious aurora light show of the northern hemisphere privately from a yacht cruising along the skyline of Reykjavik city.

Docking from Old Reykjavik harbor, we cruise along the beautiful coastline to enjoy the city lights from a different view!

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.

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’s lights up the night sky from October 9th – December 8th and few other days.
