Reykjavík Northern Lights Cruise

Experience the magic of the aurora dancing in the winter sky on the special Reykjavík northern lights cruise. This northern lights boat tour will give you the chance to sail on Faxaflói bay while looking for the experience of a lifetime: viewing the breathtaking northern lights.

This is a special Northern Lights cruise that will give you the chance to look for this spectacular phenomenon away from the city lights and while sailing on a boat. The professional guides determine the best location for Northern Lights viewing, depending on the conditions at each time and Aurora activity so you get the best chances of seeing the lights.

The open-top viewing decks of the boat provide the perfect platform for looking at the spectacle and the magical green colors of the Northern Lights (which sometimes can appear in pink or purple!). The boat also includes a heated indoor lounge where you can take a break and warm up in between sightings. Onboard, there will be a professional guide who will be happy to answer all your questions about the Northern Lights!

This Reykjavik Northern Lights tour is operated by one of our reliable partners.

Meeting point: From the old harbor in Reykjavík, pick-up available for a small extra fee (from your accommodation or one of the official bus stops)
