Description

Come on board for a cruise that whisks you away from the twinkling lights of Reykjavik and into the Atlantic Ocean through Old Harbour. On this once-in-a-lifetime tour, escape the city by boat for clear view of the Northern Lights' endlessly swirling kaleidoscope of colour.

You can choose to be picked up from your hotel (available for an additional cost - please contact supplier for this service after booking), or arrive directly to the ticket office in the Old Harbour for check in and boarding. After boarding make sure to don a comfy pair of extreme weather overalls to ensure you stay warm and dry all night. Cruise away from the dock and start scanning the sky for your first glimpse of the aurora borealis' dancing lights.

Watch the crew use top-of-the-line equipment that allows them to track the lights and find the evening's best spot for the clearest view and then stand in awe as you get your first looks at the evening's show, and learn more about the process of solar winds colliding with light to create a breath-taking light-shifting dance show, in colours ranging from dazzling green to deep red and purple.

In between glimpses, grab a hot drink from the onboard bar, or spend some time getting photography tips from the crew so you can capture frame-worthy shots of this natural phenomenon.
