Breathe in the fresh air of the Atlantic ocean on a 3-hour Northern Lights Cruise on the seas around Reykjavík. This tour is perfect for those looking to tick the Northern Light's off of their bucket list.
During summer, the sky is lit up by the sun for the lion's share of three months. The days are long, the weather is mild, and the scenery is breathtaking. When summer subsides to winter, the island changes completely. Temperatures drop, and Iceland is covered in darkness for all but a few hours each day.
During these long winter hours, when the sun retreats to the other side of the globe, the sky is lit up by entirely different sources of light; the moon, the stars and of course the magical Northern Lights.
To see them for yourself, you will depart from Reykjavík old harbour in the evening (that is only if the forecast for Northern Lights is positive). You will then sail towards the darkness and escape the lights of the city, turn off the engines and relish in that dark, quiet moment. Your tour guides know that tranquillity is the key to experiencing this spectacular show.
The Northern Lights vessel is incredibly stable, smooth and luxurious, once serving as a police boat in Hamburg, Germany. Later she was converted into a pleasure yacht located in Madeira. In 2012, the boat was converted into a fantastic Northern Lights and whale watching vessel, equipped with multiple viewing platforms, a comfortable inside area and a bar.
If you have come all the way here to Iceland to witness this spectacle, why not do it in style and comfort? Surrounded by the serenity of the winter night at sea with a cup of warm coffee, chocolate or chilled wine, all you have to do is look up and enjoy the moment. Check availability by choosing a date.
