They say seeing the Northern Lights dance and weave across the Arctic sky is a spiritual experience never to be forgotten. And what better way to view this beautiful heavenly show than by sailing out to sea well away from the city´s bright lights.
What to Expect
SET SAILS TO THE ATLANTIC TO HUNT FOR THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
There are few things more Icelandic than the Northern Lights dancing above the Arctic Ocean. Through the centuries fishermen have needed to go out fishing all year round, even in the long, dark winters. Fortunately for them, when the winter sky is clear they have had the very welcome company of the Northern Lights illuminating the sky, making it easier to fish.
Set sail from the Old Reykjavík harbour and begin our hunt out on the dark blue waters of Faxaflói Bay, leaving behind the bright city lights of Reykjavík. Your tour experts have long experience in reading the Northern Lights forecast, with and a bit of luck, you'll hopefully be successful in your search for the Auroras. You'll experience first hand how the lights constantly change in density, color and movement, with the gentle sway of the ocean beneath us. This is a thrilling and unique experience you'll never forget.
The open top viewing decks provide the perfect platform for witnessing the dazzling spectacle, while the heated indoor lounge is a great place to take a break from the Icelandic winter and warm up in between sightings. Be sure to wear warm clothes. Warm overalls can also be provided.
