Description

The stage is set to experience one of nature’s most magnificent phenomena on this tour of the Northern Lights in Iceland, starting with an informative talk before boarding the Elding II in Reykjavik Harbor. Docked just a few steps from the meeting point, where you can watch time-lapse videos and look at images and information boards about the lights, Elding II boasts a nice heated lounge where you can sit down to enjoy light refreshments, or head out to the viewing platform wrapped up in the provided warm overalls. Settle down for Mother Nature to start her tricks as your guide keeps you well informed and calls out once the Northern Lights begin. Of course, nothing in nature is guaranteed, but the expert guide and captain will always check the weather and forecast before the tour to optimize your chances of a view. With the glow of the city in the background, set out in search of the spectacle from the darkness of Faxaflói Bay. On a clear night, you may be lucky enough to see them swirling and dancing across the sky in dramatic shapes, colors, patterns, and sizes.

Important Information

  • • Like other natural phenomena the Northern Lights don't show according to the wishes of humans. In case they do not appear, you will be offered to come another night, free of charge. • Photographing the Northern Lights requires some skill. While it is not impossible to photograph the Northern Lights from a boat, it can be challenging. This tour is not recommend for those especially hoping to photograph the Northern Lights.
