Search for Aurora Borealis away from the city lights on this thrilling winter cruise. Northern Lights show best under dark, clear skies and these conditions are optimal from September until the end of April in Reykjavík. Watching the lights constantly change in intensity, colour and movement in the vast starry space with the gentle lull of the ocean beneath is a thrilling, unique experience.
You'll be taken out into the dark blue yonder of Faxaflói bay in search of the mystical phenomenon that are the auroras; leaving behind the bright city lights of the northernmost capital in the world, Reykjavík. Hunting these auroras by boat is more comfortable as there are heated indoor areas, an onboard café and a 360° viewing platform for panoramic views. Expert aurora guides will help you to enjoy the lights and give you all the information about the auroras as well as answering any questions you may have. They'll even take pictures on the tour which you can request by email when you get back home!
As the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, it isn't guaranteed that you'll see them but you're in good hands with these professional aurora hunters who have years of experience searching for the lights around Reykjavík. For a good aurora pursuit, three things are needed: solar activity, clear skies and darkness. Hopefully, you'll have them!
