Spot the Northern Lights by an Ocean Cruise

Northern Lights


Search for the northern lights via the ocean as you sail away from the coastline of Iceland's capital and see the aurora borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains. The city in the background is something you won’t forget! 

DAY 01

Northern Lights

  • Sail out from the Old Harbour in Reykjavik and in only 15-20 minutes, you will be in at the prime location away from the city lights, perfect for viewing the auroras! Your Reykjavik guide will share with you facts on the science behind the magical phenomenon of the Northern Lights, and tell you about their stories & myths from different cultures around the world. The tour takes about 2-3 hours depending on how early/late the lights might appear.

  • It is recommended putting on the free overalls on-board (overalls also available in children’s sizes!) that will keep you nice and warm out on the deck, listening to what the guide has to say about the lovely colours dancing in the sky.

  • Throughout the tour, you will be shown a very own original Northern Lights video, full of interesting facts and folklore! If you are cold you can grab a drink at the bar and cosy up inside watching the video or just simply enjoy the view of the city lights in the distance with your friends/family.

  • Useful tip: There is, always, a crew member taking pictures throughout the night so instead of taking a long time figuring out the right settings for your camera; enjoy the moment and check the daily diary to see the photos! (If you are eager to learn, you can get assistance in getting the settings right.)
