See the incredible beauty of the Northern Lights in both style and comfort on board a luxurious yacht. This tour is perfect for those looking for an awe-inspiring experience watching the celestial display of the Aurora Borealis.

You'll meet your captain and the crew at Reykjavík's Old Harbour where you'll board the luxury yacht, known as Amelia Rose. The ship is designed as an offshore vessel, making it better adapted to take on turbulent waters, so you'll get a smoother sail with less probability of experiencing nausea or seasickness.

During your journey, you will sail among the small islands in the Faxaflói Bay, and along the coast of Reykjavík before the yacht begins making its way away from the lights of the city, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the Northern Lights to the fullest.

The panoramic triple deck area allows every passenger to enjoy the breathtaking colours of the auroras, and to capture some amazing photos of the green, pink and white lights. The tour is also conducted in a small group, so your experience will be both personal and memorable.

If there is rain or wind, don't worry! The decks are partially covered to provide shelter from the elements, and you can easily circle these decks to get the best view of the Aurora Borealis. If, however, you wish to stay inside during the hunt for the Northern Lights, you will find a lovely bar and lounge area inside where you can relax in comfort. 

In case the lights do not show up, the captain and crew will still make sure that your journey will be memorable. You might play the game 'Eat like a Viking' which involves tasting some pretty interesting Icelandic delicacies, such as shark, dried fish and the local liquor, brennivín. 

Take to the sea on a luxurious yacht to see the Northern Lights in both style and comfort. Check availability by choosing a date.

It turned out to be a fabulous night. Our original tour for the Northern Lights was cancelled due to the weather. But you offered us the New Years Eve Fireworks Tour instead. It was absolutely wonderful. Although it was very cold, we had a perfect view of the harbor and all the fireworks. I have never seen so many fireworks at one time.
