What to expect

Combine a hunt for the northern lights with 3-course meal and a luxury cruise along the beautiful coastline of Reykjavik. You will be able to enjoy the clean ocean breeze and gaze at the starry night sky as you wait for the aurora, all while observing the city from a different perspective.

The tour starts with a traditional Icelandic dinner at Kopar restaurant. After enjoying a delicious meal you will get on board a yacht to go searching for the northern lights. Throughout the cruise you will have the chance to see some interesting sights such as the art sculpture Sun Voyager, a dream boat and an ode to the sun. You will also see the famous house Höfði where the agreement to end the Cold War was signed in 1986. On the way, you will pass some small islands in Faxa bay such as Viðey where the "Imagine Peace Tower" by Yoko Ono lights up the night sky from the 9th of October until the 8th of December.

The experienced crew will keep an eye out for the Aurora Borealis activity in order to find the best route towards the lights. When particles from the sun hit earth’s atmosphere it creates a bright light with colors fluctuating in hues of green, red and at times purple, a truly magical sight. If it gets chilly you can wrap a warm blanket around you or purchase a hot beverage from the shop on board. You will also find information and educational multimedia about the Northern Lights.

This deluxe cruise offers a more personal service and less crowded scenery with fewer passengers. In addition, the new interior was refitted in 2019, giving you the chance to experience the northern lights in a truly luxurious and unforgettable experience.
