Full description

See the incredible northern lights from the panoramic decks of a luxurious yacht on this guided tour. This tour is perfect for those looking for an awe-inspiring experience watching the celestial display of the aurora borealis.


Meet your captain and crew at Reykjavik's Old Harbor, where you'll board the luxury yacht. You will sail among the small islands in Faxafloi Bay and along the coast of Reykjavik before the yacht begins to sail away from the lights of the city.


This will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the northern lights to the fullest. The panoramic triple deck area allows every passenger to enjoy the breathtaking colors of the aurora, and to capture some amazing photos of the green, pink, and white light.


If you wish to stay inside during the trip, you will find a lovely bar and lounge area inside where you can relax in comfort.

Lovely boat with loads of areas to sit both inside or outside when taking pictures. Great bar selection and the staff on board are lovely. With the hotel pick up option, it makes the experience seamless as you don’t have to worry about taxis or own transport. When weather was bad and the trip had to be cancelled they were accommodating and booked us onto the trip the following day.

Our first trip was cancelled due to weather conditions. We could either reschedule or get a refund. We rescheduled for later in the week and were lucky enough to see a fantastic display of the lights. The tour guide was helpful with showing us where the activity would be and how to take the best pictures.

The yacht was lovely, and the staff were very accommodating and experienced, the guide was very good at explaining all about the lights, we did see the northern lights all be it they were faint but that had nothing to do with the guides, we still saw them and that’s what mattered
