Northern Lights by Boat 

A new experience of the Northern Lights in Iceland


Hunting the northern lights from the ocean is an amazing experience; sailing away from the coastline of Reykjavik and seeing the aurora borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains and the city lights in the background is something you won't forget. In only 15-30 minutes we will be on a prime location away from the city lights, perfect for viewing the auroras!
