Leaving from the Old Harbour in the city centre, the Northern Lights Cruise offers a unique way to experience the aurora borealis, as you’re on the sea, away from all lights with nothing but the vast ocean ahead.

As we all know, there is never anything sure in the world of Northern Lights, and what makes the boat ride such a great option, is that simply going out on the sea, in pitch black at night and seeing the city lights from there is a great experience – and with the expert guidance you’ll have a great time listening to interesting facts and stories, while enjoying a hot drink in the warmth of an Icelandic-weather-approved overalls!

And of course if you don’t see anything – you go again for free!
