Hunt for the Northern Lights from the ocean on this boat trip off the coastline of Reykjavik.

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. An expert guide will tell you all about the Northern Lights, the folklore and superstition, as well as explaining the underlying scientific facts that make this magical light show possible.

Warm overalls are available, since it does get chilly in the winter and usually much of the time is spent outside gazing at the night sky. Warm and cosy seating area with cafe/snackbar inside the boat is also available.   

Included: Pick up/drop off  from/to hotel, 2 hour boat tour, guidance in English.
