Northern Lights Luxury Yacht Cruise
Join Harpa Yachts for a cozy evening cruise from Reykjavík Old Harbor in search of the natural phenomenon called Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis.
On this approximately 2.5 hour tour we encounter many other interesting sights. We cruise along the beautiful coastline and enjoy the city lights from a different view!
When particles from the sun hit earth’s atmosphere it creates a bright light with colors fluctuating in hues of green to red to sometimes purple.
While our main goal in this tour is to see the Northern Lights we can enjoy the clean ocean breeze and gaze at the starry night sky while we wait.
We get to see Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre from another angle. Along the coastline we see the art sculpture Sun Voyager, a dream boat and an ode to the sun and the famous house Höfði, where the agreement to end the Cold War was signed in 1986.
Our experienced crew will keep an eye out for the Aurora Borealis activity to find the best route, while you enjoy the scenery from the vast darkness behind the small island in Faxaflói bay. Among them is one of Iceland’s most famous Islands, Viðey, where the Imagine Peace Tower by Yoko Ono’s lights up the night sky from October 9th – December 8th and few other days.
If it gets chilly you can wrap around you a warm blanket or purchase a hot beverage from our on board shop were we offer a selection of light refreshments.
This deluxe cruise offers a more personal service and less crowded scenery with fewer passengers. We recommend booking in advance, because we limit group size to enhance customer satisfaction.
On board you will find information and educational multimedia about the Northern Lights.
