Health and safety measures are in place so you can enjoy culture with confidence.



  • Witness the incredible northern lights by boat, just 10-15 minutes outside of Reykjavik

  • Enjoy the use of free warm overalls, plus a comfy warm indoor lounge and bar on the boat


Leave the lights of Reykjavík behind you as you sail with your trusty captain into the black, in search of the dazzling aurora borealis. Enjoy hot drinks, live facts and stories and (hopefully) nature's spectacular northern light show! A unique must-do experience in Iceland.

Cruise away from the city lights into the starry night, to a perfect place for the northern lights to shine!

You'll be snug in a warm indoor seating area wearing free warm overalls. Is that waffles you can smell? You bet! They make them on board for you to buy from the bar, along with hot cocoa, coffee and tea. There's space outside on the deck to enjoy some serious stargazing with your snacks.

Learn the scientific facts about this natural phenomenon from an expert guide. Listen to the stories of people who've grown up with the northern lights, and get all your questions answered as the lights blaze above you - a real "wow" moment!

If those unpredictable Icelandic skies mean your boat tour is cancelled on your selected date, don't worry. This is a northern lights tour with a backup plan! Not only will your tour be re-scheduled for free, you'll get a guided tour of the Whales of Iceland exhibition, as well as a free viewing of a 25-minute film about the northern lights featuring fascinating facts and stories.
