Northern Lights by Boat

Experience a hunt for the Northern Lights at sea!

A new experience of the Northern Lights in Iceland

The original Northern Lights by Boat tour in Iceland!

Hunting the northern lights from the ocean is an amazing experience; sailing away from the coastline of Reykjavik and seeing the aurora borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains and the city lights in the background is something you won't forget! 

In only 15-30 minutes we will be in a prime location away from the city lights, perfect for viewing the auroras!
We are unconfined by roadways!

Overalls are provided on-board 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 we show our very own original Northern Lights video, full of interesting facts and folklore!
