Join this exciting evening cruise from Reykjavík harbour on a hunt for the magical Northern Lights. At sea, away from the city’s light pollution, is the ideal place to experience this phenomenon. The vessel has a few outdoor viewing decks and a warm café inside.
The Northern Lights occur when charged particles from a solar flair penetrate the earth’s magnetic field and collide with molecules in our atmosphere. They can appear in different colours but green and white are the most common ones to see and sometimes purple and blue. The Auroras can dance and twirl at high speed around the night sky or fade slowly in and out.
After collecting your ticket at the ticket office your crew and guide will welcome you at the visiting centre which is an old fishing vessel permanently moored in the harbour. From there you head to the Aurora cruise vessel. Feel free to borrow an insulated suit to keep extra warm but don’t forget your gloves and hats as it can get really cold at night on sea. The vessel has a few viewing platforms and a warm café and bar inside. This tour is often more likely to go ahead when tours on land cancel as experience shows that out on sea the clouds tend to clear up and and open a gateway to the most beautiful Northern Lights. If there are no Auroras to be seen, you can book another day free of charge or get a voucher which is valid for 2 years.
Due to the nature of not standing on solid ground, the photos you take tend to be blurred. If you’re looking for a Northern Light tour which is more suitable for photography, then we recommend you grab your camera and tripod and book the Northern Lights tour in a minibus
