Full description
See the incredible northern lights from the panoramic decks of a luxurious yacht. 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 lights. The tour is conducted in a small group, so your experience will be both personal and memorable. Don't worry if there is rain or wind, as the decks are partially covered to provide shelter from the elements. 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. If the lights do not show up, the captain and crew will still make sure that your journey is enjoyable. You will be given the chance to taste Icelandic delicacies such as shark, dried fish, and brennivin, the local liquor.

Lovely yacht with a great crew. It looked as if the lights were not going to show for most of the evening but the yacht stayed out after all the other boats had left and we were rewarded with a spectacular display. We came back over an hour later than originally planned, but thanks to the experience and dedication of the crew we saw the lights at their best, when other trips missed them completely. The yacht itself is spacious and very comfortable with plenty of outside space for viewing.

What a fantastic trip we had!! Would defo recommend it. The ship is spotless and the crew are all really nice and helpful. Lucky the guide cannot do enough for you. They even stayed out longer for us so we could see the lights all the other boats returned and missed the lights. The lights teased us all night just giving us a slight glimpse. Then around midnight them came out in force and were amazing. A trip we will always remember also the hot chocolate and Baileys was fantastic too.

Could not recommend this any more. 2 female travellers and felt entirely comfortable with Lucky and the crew members. Really informative, they go over and above in making the experience the best it can be and are constantly letting us know when there may be a sighting. They provided blankets to keep warm outside and will send photos of the lights if your phone can’t pick it up. Our night was made even better by the sudden sighting of the lights; they were incredibly vibrant, enough to make all the crew come outside to witness. The captain even stayed out longer than the expected duration as he had a feeling they would come out; and he was completely right. Highly recommend to anyone.
