Northern Lights Viewing Cruise from Reykjavik (2.5 Hours)
Start with a nighttime pickup from your hotel, then board a cruise boat and set off from Reykjavik's coast toward Faxaflói Bay for your once-in-a-lifetime Northern Lights experience. Also known as the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights are triggered by magnetic storms that paint ribbons of green, blue, yellow, purple and red in the sky.

Pull on a pair of provided overalls, then find a comfortable spot in the viewing area. As your boat cuts through the waters, gaze around you at the darkness-cloaked landscape, and listen to your guide share fascinating facts about the lights, as well as the legends that surround them.

Sightings cannot be guaranteed as they’re dependent on weather, location and chance, but with luck and a cloudless sky, you may catch a mesmerizing show. Should you wish, warm yourself up with hot chocolate, tea and chocolate (own expense) while you keep watch.

After 2.5 hours, your tour ends with a drop-off back at your hotel. If the cruise is canceled due to poor weather conditions, you’ll be given the option of attending the cruise on an alternative date.

Whale-Watching Tour from Reykjavik (3.5 Hours)
Begin with a hotel pickup and then travel to Reykjavik’s Old Harbor. On arrival, board your comfortable, whale-watching boat and take a seat on deck. Pull on a pair of overalls to shield you from the cold, and listen as your guide explains what marine life you can expect to see during your cruise.
As your boat slips away from shore and out onto the open waters of Faxaflói Bay, look out for harbor porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpback whales. With up to 90% whale-spotting success, this cruise offers a fantastic chance to see whales. In the unlikely event that you don’t spot a whale, you will receive a complimentary ticket for another boat ride.

If you feel cold during your cruise, seek refuge inside the cozy viewing area, where you can thaw out with hot chocolate, coffee, tea and snacks (own expense). After your cruise, your experience concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Please note: You can choose to take the tours on the same day, or across separate days during your Iceland vacation.

  • We didn't see any whales and all members of my party vomited. Felt like 3.5 hours of torture.
    They said we could go again but there was no way we were getting back on that boat! We had been warned of rough waters but the trip should have just been cancelled so that we could get a refund.

  • Really good tour especially as the tour guides were extremely informative. Even though we did not see any wildlife on our whale watching tour, I would still rate this trip 5 star due to the fact that it is not the company's fault that the whales did not come out to play but they have offered us an open expiration for another tour if we go back to Iceland. It was a nice day trip and evening trip especially as we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights!

  • This tour company has a great reputation with the local community of Reykjavik and #34;old harbor and #34; and it shows in the quality and professionalism throughout the entire crew. Easy to find, great guide that is well educated and no matter where you wandered on all decks you could hear him perfectly. AWESOME

  • I booked a two part cruise that included whale watching during the day, getting dropped off at your hotel and Northern Lights tour later in the night. The whale watching was ok but the boat was very small for the amount of people onboard, not many places to stand without others surrounding you. Despite waiting in my hotel lobby, in the same way I did for the day tour, nobody came and collected me for the night Northern Lights tour.

  • Never went ahead due to low activity cannot comment

  • Really good northern lights tour, lucky to see them sue to activish and clear skies. Good smooth sail on both. Unfortunately not able to see whales/dolphins - but company did offer another trip free of charge was our last day so couldn't capitalise. Very good tour guides/speakers. Entertainment was a bit novel on northern lights tour, and speaker system not so great on whale watching tour. Definitely worth the money though.

  • We chose a cruise to search for northern lights and were rewarded. Unfortunately this looks much better on photographs then in reality. However, considering that other coach trips were cancelled on that night due to bad weather we were quite pleased.

  • Fantastic, the tour company was great to work with. I will definitely use them again.

  • fortunate enough to see the lights on our tour and was a great night out on the water

  • The day we went to view the Whales we only saw a few but received passes that do not expire in we go back to Iceland. The Northern lights were fabulous. Would highly recommend.
