Full description
See the incredible northern lights from the panoramic decks of a luxurious yacht. 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 lights. The tour is conducted in a small group, so your experience will be both personal and memorable. Don't worry if there is rain or wind, as the decks are partially covered to provide shelter from the elements. 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. If the lights do not show up, the captain and crew will still make sure that your journey is enjoyable. You will be given the chance to taste Icelandic delicacies such as shark, dried fish, and brennivin, the local liquor.

So much more pleasant than the coach tour we’d done the night before. Great hosts, cosy yacht, nice bar. Top notch! They found the best place for us to get a spot. Wi-Fi on board. I’d recommend downloading an aurora app so you can see when the lights are on their way and pop out into the cold when you know they’re on the way! Thanks for a fabulous time!

This was an amazing tour- we saw amazing Northern Lights out away from the city with the maginficience of the ocean and mountains embellishing the night sky! Highly reccomend. I had a crappy phone camera, and Lucky was kind enough to send me her aurora lights photos- thanks so much, Lucky!! :)

Lovely trip, steps very steep, my mum was unable to leave the deck at the bottom. Understand why all the lights were turned off however it was very dark, and there is no speakers on the PA system in the front of the boat where we sat so we missed all of the information.
