Full description

See the incredible northern lights from the panoramic decks of a 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 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.

Would suggest sitting on top deck straight away which then does take away from being on a nicer boat. The boat was amazing but while enjoying a drink inside we did miss the first sightings of Northern Lights less than a minute out of dock, then spent the next three hours on deck so decide if you think if it's worth the extra money.. the boat is immaculate, warm and comfortable so imagine on the choppier nights it would be worth while!

Gorgeous boat, friendly and informative staff. We managed to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights on our recent trip to Reykjavík! The tour was great and an amazing experience. There are sea sickness tablets and bags available on board if anyone needs them as well as toilets and a bar area with snacks.

Unfortunately we didn’t think the yacht was ‘luxury’ in anyway. The tour guide was lovely and very informative, the crew are extremely clued up on the northern lights unfortunately we didn’t get to see them but we’re offered to return within the next 3 years free of charge to try again. We thankfully seen them the next night and they are amazing.
