Northern lights by boat

Search for Aurora Borealis away from the city lights, on this thrilling winter cruise. Northern Lights are best displayed under dark, clear skies. You can find these conditions from September until the end of April in Reykjavík. Watching the lights constantly change in intensity, colour and movement in the vast starry space with the gentle lull of the ocean beneath is a thrilling, unique experience.

As the northern lights are a natural phenomenon we cannot guarantee that we will see them, but we are professional aurora hunters with years of experience searching for the lights around Reykjavík. For a good aurora pursuit we need three things; solar activity, clear skies and darkness. A lot of other tour operators will cancel their tours if the forecast is not in their favour - well, we don’t! We know that you don’t have many days to search for the lights and that the weather can change in mere minutes, anywhere from a full cloud forecast to clear skies. We want to maximise your chance the best we can and so WE WILL ALWAYS GIVE IT A GO! Our searching area is close to shores and around small islands, far enough away from city lights and therefore it is optimal for a smooth and comfortable sailing.

If the lights fail to make an appearance you can try again the next day or any other day at your convenience. You are free to go as many times as needed (within two years) to catch the show - at no extra cost!

COMBO: Combine this activity with whale watching or check our other combo tours!
EXTRA: We recommend booking the 'dinner add-on' at RIO Reykjavík

Please note that for your enjoyment and safety, this tour is subject to conditions at sea and therefore it could get cancelled on short notice. We will do our best to notify you in good time.
