Full description

See the incredible northern lights from the panoramic decks of a luxurious yacht on this guided tour. This tour is perfect for those looking for an awe-inspiring experience watching the celestial display of the aurora borealis.


Meet your captain and crew at Reykjavik's Old Harbor, where you'll board the luxury yacht. You will sail among the small islands in Faxafloi Bay and along the coast of Reykjavik before the yacht begins to sail away from the lights of the city.


This will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the northern lights to the fullest. The panoramic triple deck area allows every passenger to enjoy the breathtaking colors of the aurora, and to capture some amazing photos of the green, pink, and white light.


If you wish to stay inside during the trip, you will find a lovely bar and lounge area inside where you can relax in comfort.

Cant really fault the boat , we didn’t see the lights that night , however they do give you the option to come back free of charge a second time and it’s valid for 3 years . However the boat does not go far out , you still are close to the city lights and skyline , boat probably goes to the length of the pier , you could probably just go to a lighthouse

A magnificent yacht, a warm welcome and it was the only time I could really see the aurora borealis, although small, but I was able to photograph them. I highly recommend thanks to the team to this young girl from the staff who came to chat with me in French as well. Thanks a lot! See you soon

The boat excursion was fun and the boat was comfortable with lots of places to sit. The crew played fun music. I also like the explanation about the Northern Lights. I would improved the ticket checking procedure. We had to wait outside in the cold, and it was very cold, to show our proof of purchase and get a voucher to get on the boat. We were frozen, before even starting!
