Board a comfortable viewing boat and leave Reykjavik's coast toward Faxafli Bay to begin your once-in-a-lifetime northern lights experience.
The northern lights (aurora borealis) create a natural light formation in the sky in the Arctics upper atmosphere, about 50 miles (80 km) high. The overwhelming appearance was named by the French philosopher Pierre Gassendi after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek god of the north wind, Boreas.
Your expert guide will tell you all about the fascinating and beautiful northern lights, including the folklore and superstition behind them, as well as the underlying scientific facts that make this magical light show possible. Admire the stellar lights from the luxurious and cozy viewing area and warm yourself up with hot coffee, tea and chocolate and light refreshments (refreshments on own expense).
