Witness the magnificent Northern Lights from the sea in the most comfortable way possible aboard our Northern Lights Cruise from Reykjavík. As we are not restricted to any roads like northern lights tours by bus, our sightseeing cruises can cover a totally different area of the night sky when searching for the lights. Sailing from Reykjavík´s Old Harbour, we leave the capital´s city lights far behind, entering a world of darkness in the frigid seas of the North Atlantic, which serves as the perfect viewing location to see the aurora borealis in Iceland.

Welcome aboard our spacious boat, with indoor seating area, multiple outer deck and even a coffee shop for much welcome warm drinks. Our passionate guides will entertain and educate you along the way as we search for clear skies and the shimmering northern lights. Our guides will inform those sitting inside when the lights do appear. Until then you can enjoy our fantastic video about the northern lights, with incredicle footage and information.

Our guides will help you with your camera settings so you can get that perfect snap, whether on your phone or DSLR camera. They also take photos on every tour which you can access in the days after the tour for free.

Pickup is available for an extra charge or you can meet us at the Old Harbour in Reykjavík.
