The Northern Lights cruise is focused mainly on the southern part of Faxaflói, just off Reykjavík. The boat tour provides a great opportunity to view the Auroras without having to go far away from the city.

As the northern lights are a natural phenomenon we cannot guarantee that we will see them, but we are professional aurora hunters with years of experience searching for the lights around Reykjavík. For a good aurora pursuit, we need three things; solar activity, clear skies, and darkness. A lot of other tour operators will cancel their tours if the forecast is not in their favor - well, we don’t! We know that you don’t have many days to search for the lights and that the weather can change in mere minutes, anywhere from a full cloud forecast to clear skies. We want to maximize your chance the best we can and so WE WILL ALWAYS GIVE IT A GO! Our searching area is close to shores and around small islands, far enough away from city lights and therefore it is optimal for a smooth and comfortable sailing. 

If the lights fail to make an appearance we do not refund the tour price but instead offer you to try again another day. You are free to go as many times as needed (within two years) to catch the show - at no extra cost!
