Main Description

You sail out from the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik. After only 15-20 minutes we will be in a prime location which is perfect for viewing the auroras! This is because you will have left the city lights behind you. Meanwhile the guide will share with you facts on the science behind the magical phenomenon of the Northern Lights, and tell you about their stories & myths from different cultures around the world.

It is a good idea to use the free overalls on-board (overalls also available in children’s sizes!) that will keep you nice and warm out on the deck, listening to what the guide has to say about the lovely colours dancing in the sky.

Throughout the tour you can watch an original Northern Lights video, full of interesting facts and folklore! At the bar you can grab a drink at the bar and cozy up inside watching the video or just simply enjoy the view of the city lights in the distance with your friends/family.

Useful tip: There is always a crew member taking pictures throughout the night so instead of taking a long time figuring out the right settings for your camera, enjoy the moment and email us for the pictures the next day! (If you are eager to learn we can also assist you in getting the settings right)

These tours are subject to correct weather conditions and sightings cannot be guaranteed. We reserve the right to cancel the tour due to unfavourable weather conditions if need be. Take a look at our terms & conditions for further information.

If the northern lights boat tour is cancelled, but aurora conditions are favourable, we offer a replacement northern lights tour by bus, plus a chance to join the boat tour the next available day (even if you see the lights on the bus).

If the tour does not operate at all (boat or bus) during your stay due to unfavourable weather conditions, you can exchange your ticket/voucher with one of the following options*:

  • A Whale Watching Tour
  • The chance to join a night of fun at the Whales of Iceland Exhibition (while keeping your boat ticket!)
  • Or a full refund. (*All options have a value greater than or equal to the cost of 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. This ticket is valid indefinitely – so if you don’t have another chance this time around we welcome you back when you visit Iceland again!

Dress tip: Dress according to Icelandic weather and don’t forget your hats & gloves. Our staff always does their best to keep the boat decks clear of ice/snow – but we do recommend wearing good shoes on the tour as the weather can change quickly.

Included

  • Guided boat tour
  • Warm floatable overalls or raincoats
