Full Description

Hunting the northern lights from the ocean is an amazing experience; sailing away from the coastline of Reykjavik and seeing the aurora borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains and the city lights in the background is something you won't forget!

In only 15-30 minutes we will be on a prime location away from the city lights, perfect for viewing the auroras!
We are unconfined by roadways!

Overalls provided on-board that will keep you nice and warm out on the deck, listening to what the guide has to say about the lovely colours dancing in the sky.

Throughout the tour we show our very own original Northern Lights video, full of interesting facts and folklore!

Departure / meeting point

Starting point of the tour is at:
Aegisgardur 13,

These tours are subject to correct weather conditions and sightings cannot be guaranteed. We reserve the right to cancel the tour due to unfavorable weather conditions if need be. Take a look at our terms & conditions for further information.

If the northern lights boat tour is cancelled, but aurora conditions are favourable, we offer a replacement northern lights tour by bus, plus a chance to join the boat tour the next available day.

If the tour does not operate at all (boat or bus) during your stay due to unfavorable weather conditions, you can exchange your ticket/voucher with one of the following options*:

A Whale Watching Tour

A luxurious 3 course menu at Kopar, one of the most popular restaurants in Reykjavik
Or a full refund. (*All options cost the same amount or more as your northern lights by boat ticket).
If you join the tour (boat or bus) and there are no sightings you will get another ticket to join us on the next available day.

Our staff always do their best to keep the boat decks clear of ice/snow - but we do recommend wearing good shoes on the tour as the weather can change quickly.
