  • Experience the magic of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)
  • Take a comfortable yacht cruise into Faxaflói Bay
  • Enjoy the lights of Reykjavik from a different perspective
  • Cruise along the beautiful coastline of Reykjavik


Embark on an unforgettable journey along Iceland's stunning coastline, starting from Reykjavik Old Harbor and extending into the expansive Faxaflói Bay. Step aboard a motor yacht for an exclusive experience that combines the allure of city lights with the elusive magic of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Your tour is meticulously designed to lead you away from the city lights, immersing you in the ocean's darkness for an optimal viewing of this celestial phenomenon. Weather permitting, witness the breathtaking choreography of lights in the sky, created when solar particles interact with the Earth's atmosphere. Capture these mesmerizing moments with ease, as the stable vessel provides a perfect platform for photography. Guided by a seasoned crew, navigate through the vast darkness behind the islands of Faxaflói Bay, including Viðey, where Yoko Ono's Imagine Peace Tower graces the night sky from October 9 to December 8, and select other days of the year. Admire iconic landmarks like the Harpa Concert Hall, its glass façade inspired by the basalt landscape, and the Sun Voyager statue by Jón Gunnar Árnason. Gain a unique perspective on the historic Höfði house, where the Cold War came to an end in 1986. Escape the bustling crowds with our limited group sizes, 35 passengers on MY Harpa and 95 passengers on MY Amelia Rose, ensuring a more personalized and intimate experience. Should the chilly ocean breeze set in, wrap yourself in warm blankets provided onboard. Indulge in hot drinks and refreshments available at the bar as you patiently await the awe-inspiring appearance of the Northern Lights.
