Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Being on the water gets you away from the crowds and light pollution on land.
Step aboard a sightseeing boat and cruise out into the waters of Faxaflói Bay to search for the Northern Lights. 

The natural phenomenon occurs when particles in the Earth’s atmosphere collide, producing vivid colors in the sky. Learn all about the Northern Lights from your guide, and separate scientific facts from fictional myth. Get out on deck to stargaze outdoors, or hunker down in the viewing area with a hot drink. Refreshments are available to purchase, if you wish.

After 2.5 hours on the water, return to the start point and finish with a hotel drop-off (if option selected).

Great way to see the lights

Would defo recommend. We went the first night but couldn't see the lights, so you get to come back as often as necessary to catch a glimpse. Some great photos on board when we did see them the second night. Staff very friendly and helpful with camera settings.

We didn’t get to see the lights which was disappointing, but the tour guides tried their best to keep our hopes up.
We were offered a complementary trip to go bag which was nice, but we decided to go whale watching instead.

I cannot believe i saw the northern lights first time in my life. It was cold, even they gave us winter proof overalls.

We did see the northern lights and they were spectacular

We were unfortunate that we didn't see the lights, but this tour gives you two years to use the voucher, so that's a bonus.

Had an amazing view of the northern lights! The tour guide also was informative and engaging. It was really fun. I usually eschew guided tours because I prefer having the flexibility to explore but this is a must if in Reykjavik. The one thing I would recommend is getting to the boat really, really early - all of the warm suits were long gone by the time we boarded and we were early as it is.
