Seeing the Northern Lights

We will board the boat that will take us into Faxaflói Bay in search of the magnificent Northern Lights. As we enter the sea and its darkness, we will leave behind the city lights of Reykjavík, which makes it difficult to see the northern lights. We will search for the northern lights near the coast and around the islands, away from the city lights, in the dark.

⚠️Departures This tour departs every day, even if there is a forecast of full clouds, this can change in minutes to clear skies. If we do not manage to see the northern lights, we offer to try again until you manage to see them.
