Your tour starts at 23:00, when your yacht will escort you from the Reykjavik harbor to the ocean. You'll head into the night along the coastline and towards the islands around the capital. 

This yacht cruise is a fantastic opportunity to see the city lights and attractions from a different perspective. View the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre from the comfort of the yacht. 

This modern waterfront building appears even more stunning at nighttime when the glass exterior sparkles with color. 

You'll also see the impressive Sun Voyager art sculpture and the famous Hofdi House historical landmark. Breathe in the fresh ocean air and gaze at the starry night sky. If you're lucky, you may glimpse the elusive northern lights.

The boat will head into the vast darkness of Faxafloi Bay, giving you a chance to see the sky light up in splashes of green and purple, a wonderful preamble to the midnight fireworks display to come.

This trip also provides the perfect time to see the Imagine Peace Tower on Videy island nearby. Marvel at the tall searchlights projected upward from a white stone monument. 

The tower is a memorial to the famous singer and songwriter John Lennon by his widow, Yoko Ono. It lights up during specific times of the year and produces an impressive light display that can penetrate the cloud cover.

While you relax on the yacht, check out the interactive information about the aurora borealis in the cabin. The vessel is stable and spacious, offering an excellent opportunity to snap some great photos.

Wrap yourself up in a warm blanket if it gets chilly, and enjoy light refreshments from the onboard shop and bar. Overall, you can expect a deluxe experience and a superior level of service.

As the clock strikes midnight, you'll feel the excitement of welcoming a new year amid a dazzling fireworks display. Raise your complimentary glass of champagne as you see the Reykjavik skyline light up in sparkling bursts of light. 

Soon after, the boat will take you back to the city harbor, where you can continue the celebrations at one of Reykjavik's bars or clubs.
