Full description
See the incredible northern lights from the panoramic decks of a luxurious yacht. This tour is perfect for those looking for an awe-inspiring experience watching the celestial display of the aurora borealis. Meet your captain and crew at Reykjavik's Old Harbor, where you'll board the luxury yacht. You will sail among the small islands in Faxafloi Bay and along the coast of Reykjavik before the yacht begins to sail away from the lights of the city. This will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the northern lights to the fullest. The panoramic triple deck area allows every passenger to enjoy the breathtaking colors of the Aurora, and to capture some amazing photos of the green, pink, and white lights. The tour is conducted in a small group, so your experience will be both personal and memorable. Don't worry if there is rain or wind, as the decks are partially covered to provide shelter from the elements. If you wish to stay inside during the trip, you will find a lovely bar and lounge area inside where you can relax in comfort. If the lights do not show up, the captain and crew will still make sure that your journey is enjoyable. You will be given the chance to taste Icelandic delicacies such as shark, dried fish, and brennivin, the local liquor.

This was the first of three booking made with Get Your Guide for our trip to Iceland. I contacted the company Sea Trips Reykjavik the day prior as per the booking details to confirm the pick up and received a 10 minute window to be ready. The driver collected us and took us to the Yacht all of this was hassle free and pleasant, on the way the driver pointed out some interesting parts of Reykjavik. On arrival at the Yacht we waited patiently to cast off and received a brief by Lucky. There was lots of opportunity to explore the Yacht which was amazing experience in itself. As the weather was cold (unsurprisingly) the team kept an eye out for the lights and would inform us when to go outside and take pictures - the staff also assisted with the setting up of cameras/ phones to get the best pictures. Whilst we saw the Northern Lights our cameras did little justice, fortunately Lucky took pictures as well which were incredible and sent these on to us. Overall Amazing trip & recommended

This tour was a nice relaxing experience despite the fact that we did not get to see the northern lights. I took off one star for that even though the tour company had no control over the northern lights, but it would be nice to have gotten the complete experience. What is really nice though is the fact that they will honor your voucher so you could continue going out on the boat practically every night until you did see the northern lights. This isn’t so great when you’re on vacation and leaving two days after your tour but The guarantee lasts up to two years so if by chance you get back to Iceland within two years you can use your voucher again. I think that’s a wonderful service/option to offer! The boat was very nice and comfortable and the crew was welcoming and fun. There was a bar to keep you busy when the weather outside it’s raining and or while you’re traveling in search of the lights. The seating was all very comfortable as well.

I was lucky because I could see the aurora immediately after leaving the port. The guide was taking pictures of the aurora, but I wish the participants and the aurora were taken together. It was explained that you can eat local food, but is it charged? Is it? Is it because I met the aurora immediately after leaving the port? I didn't go farther than I expected. Seeing the lights on the land made me feel lost.
