Step aboard the eco-friendly sailboat Opal, a unique vessel powered only by wind and electricity. Opal has an authentic charm and feel and is the perfect platform for an unforgettable adventure.

During the tour you will silently sail around nearby islands and legendary lighthouses while listening to tales of the past. You will see the Reykjavík City Lights from a whole new perspective, and on selected dates, the Yoko Ono's Peace Tower. You will also search for the Northern Lights, a classic sight in Iceland. All this and more under the guidance of a highly experienced and professional sailing crew.
