All about the trip
We sail out from the Old Harbour in Reykjavik and in only 15-20 minutes we will be in a prime location away from the city lights, perfect for viewing the auroras. The guide will share with you facts on the science behind the magical phenomenon of the northern lights, and tell you about their stories and myths from different cultures around the world. The tour takes about 2-3 hours depending on how early or late the lights might appear.
We recommend putting on our free overalls on-board (overalls also available in children’s sizes) that will keep you nice and warm out on the deck, listening to what the guide has to say about the lovely colors dancing in the sky.
Throughout the tour, we will show our very own northern lights video, full of interesting facts and folklore. If you are cold you can grab a drink at the bar and cozy up inside watching the video or just simply enjoy the view of the city lights in the distance with your friends or family.Watch on Youtube
