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!

We have overalls provided onboard 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 show our very own original Northern Lights video, full of interesting facts and folklore!

The northern lights are highly condition dependent and we may need to adjust the tour accordingly.

If the northern lights boat tour is canceled, but conditions are favorable for aurora borealis, 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
  • the Fish Adventure menu at Kopar, one of the most popular restaurants in Reykjavik, starting with a welcome drink
    the 9-course sharing Kopar Adventure Menu
  • 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.
