Search for Aurora Borealis away from the city lights, on this thrilling winter cruise. Northern lights are best displayed under dark, clear skies. You can find these conditions from September until the end of April in Reykjavík. Watching the lights constantly change in intensity, color, and movement in the vast starry space with the gentle lull of the ocean beneath is a thrilling, unique experience. The Northern Lights Cruise commences at our ticket office by the Ægisgarður pier in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik. There you can buy tickets or exchange a voucher for a prepaid trip. A guide will meet you in the Whale Watching Centre, which is facilitated on board an old fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier. At night it takes on a magical form with a multimedia northern lights show. The 10-minute show includes images, and time-lapse footage of the lights while explaining the science behind the northern lights. On the tour we will take you out into the dark blue yonder of Faxaflói Bay in search for the mystical phenomenon we call the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, leaving behind the bright city lights of the capital Reykjavík. Our open-top viewing decks provide the perfect platform for witnessing the dazzling spectacle while our heated indoor lounge is a great place to take a break and warm up in between sightings. Our expert guide will be at hand to answer your questions while you enjoy Mother Nature’s light show and starry skies wrapped up in one of our warm overalls. On board, you will find several outdoor viewing platforms and a large indoor saloon with toilet facilities and a café where you can buy light refreshments.
