Hunt for the mystical Northern Lights on the ocean with a sightseeing cruise from Reykjavik. Set off from the coastline to quieter waters and escape the city light pollution. Immerse yourself in a backdrop of mountains and wait to catch a glimpse of ethereal lights in the night sky. Choose to make your way to the old harbor or get picked up from your hotel in Reykjavik. Be welcomed onto the boat by a friendly crew and settle down into your seat with an unobstructed view of the sky. Drift out into open water as you watch the bright lights of the city start to fade behind you. Experience the silent beauty of the mountains and stay warm and comfy with a provided blanket. Gaze into the stars above you and wait for a glimpse of bright green against the darkness. Watch the shimmering reflection dance in the water before heading back to the port.
