Guided by a seasoned crew, navigate through the vast darkness behind the islands of Faxaflói Bay, including Viðey, where Yoko Ono's Imagine Peace Tower graces the night sky from October 9 to December 8, and select other days of the year. Admire iconic landmarks like the Harpa Concert Hall, its glass façade inspired by the basalt landscape, and the Sun Voyager statue by Jón Gunnar Árnason. Gain a unique perspective on the historic Höfði house, where the Cold War came to an end in 1986. Escape the bustling crowds with our limited group sizes, 35 passengers on MY Harpa and 95 passengers on MY Amelia Rose, ensuring a more personalized and intimate experience.

Reykjavik: Premium Whale and Puffin Watching Evening Tour

6. Reykjavik: Premium Whale and Puffin Watching Evening Tour

During bright Icelandic summer nights the Nordic midnight sun just seems endless. Therefore, an evening cruise is the ideal way to make the most of your day in Reykjavík while enjoying close-up views of whales, dolphins, puffins and more. As the whales never fully sleep, you can expect encountering the same wildlife on this express whale watching tour as on regular day tours. Just off the coast of Reykjavík, you can encounter some of the best whale watching in the world and during the summer time whales are seen in over 95% of the tours.  This unique whale watching tour is conducted in small RIB speedboats which are extremely stable boats with high performance abilities. The small yet powerful vessel is capable of reaching high speeds, allowing you to cover a larger area and get closer to the Faxaflói bay wildlife than you would in a classic boat. Hold on tight while your captain zips you out of the harbor and look out for some of the wildlife Iceland is famous for. Loop around the wind-beaten islands of the bay to see puffins in their natural habitat and then head out on the open water to scout out whales and dolphins and, hopefully, get some close-up views. After the tour, return to Reykjavík by ending the tour with a unique ride along the city’s shoreline offering magnificent views of the Sun Voyager sculpture and the glittering Harpa Concert Hall. Colorful fishing huts and bustling restaurants make up the cityscape in this part of town, alongside some thought-provoking attractions. If you were unlucky enough to not spot any whales, worry not, your captain will give you a complimentary ticket for another ride on the larger boats before you leave.

I went on a cruise twice on the Amelia Rose. The first time, I didn't have the chance to see the auroras, I took the opportunity offered by the company to come back a few days later and this time it was a magical explosion!!! A shower of dawns before our eyes!!! The captain explains well how to take photos with smartphones. The silent yacht is comfortable with its 3 levels, the atmosphere inside is cozy and dark to accustom the eyes to the darkness while remaining warm. If it's too cold, you can borrow blankets and buy drinks at the bar... I recommend this outing, it's definitely worth it!!! It’s a must to do in the Icelandic capital!

Perfect tour! If you saw the northern lights on the water on the way to the boat, you could see them a little better. During the tour the activity increased and we were able to admire very strong northern lights in different colors. The guide was super nice and funny and did his best. You could also go in at any time to warm up without having to worry about missing the northern lights because the guide announced it in good time every time there was a sighting. In addition, the boat was not overcrowded so everyone had enough space without jostling. Simply great! The tour was worth every penny!

Good approach to Reykjavik. A must do when you arrive here. The guide gives information that you cannot get by walking around yourself. A good investment.

Cloudy skies but we got a glimpse of the northern lights

boss la seen the northern lights was evy - jack naylor
