Sails & Northern Lights
Duration: 2.5 Hours Season: Winter

Experience the Northern Lights, Reykjavík City Lights, and Yoko Ono’s Peace Tower—remarkably see them from the electric-powered schooner, Opal.

Sailing on the eco-friendly sailboat Opal is an experience that leaves no one untouched. This unique whale watching vessel is all-electric and can regenerate its batteries by using sails. There is nothing like taking a silent-running boat tour under the aurora borealis.

Onboard the guides will share interesting tales of the past while you enjoy the view of nearby islands and legendary lighthouses. Assist our crew with the rigging, enjoy refreshments from the crew, have a beer in the on-deck hot tub or sip a glass of wine by the fireplace below deck.
