Come along on an adventure of a lifetime. This is the perfect option for those looking for a fantastic, eco-friendly, and exclusive sailing tour where they can unwind in a hot tub, search for the Northern Lights and enjoy the Icelandic Nature.

Departing from Reykjavik old downtown harbour, this 2.5-hour sailing trip offers an experience that is hard to beat. 

Meet your friendly and highly experienced crew who will take you along for a great evening onboard the amazing boat, Opal. During the tour, they will share with you exciting tales and stories of the nearby islands and legendary lighthouses while silently sailing around them.

Either up on deck or inside in the cozy saloon you can enjoy surprise refreshments prepared by the crew. 

Get cosy and further relax by the wood burning stove while having a glass of good wine. Before or after the warm meal you can dip in the on-deck wooden hot tub and have a cold beer while admiring the stunning lights as seen from the boat. Make sure to bring your swim gear if you are feeling adventurous – there is nothing like being in a hot tub while actually sailing!

Experience real Viking-style moments when assisting the crew with the sails and rigging. If you are not up for some action then just sit back, seize the moment and enjoy the hot drinks served on board.

Opal is truly a one-of-a-kind, award-winning, electric-powered sailboat. This beautiful and elegant sailboat is so charming and authentic that the moment you step onboard you can feel the aura of past times. And the internationally awarded carbon-free engine makes it even more special. No sound, no pollution. Just pure pleasure sailing – powered by wind and green energy.

While sailing around the Faxaflói Bay, you can admire the stunning view of the city lights of Reykjavík. You will also see nearby islands which are full of history and folklore. On selected dates, you will see Yoko Ono’s famous Imagine Peace Tower on Viðey island.

Don't forget about the Northern Lights. Dark skies in the winter always bring the possibility of these dancing auroras and witnessing them from the deck of a sailboat out at sea makes the experience even more memorable.

Step aboard, set sail, and head into the mystic winter nights for an adventure of a lifetime. Check availability by choosing a date.
