About this Offer

Departing your choice of airport you can choose either a 3 or 4 night stay in the capital Reykjavik. You’ll stay in a 3* hotel with en-suite facilities convenient to all the attractions this wonderful city has to offer and a local Icelandic Breakfast is included each morning.

On the night of arrival or the night of your choice you’ll join us on the hunt for the Northern Lights where we will pick you up by coach and take you to try and witness this spectacular natural phenomenon which happens during the winter months.

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. Northern Lights in Iceland are visible during the winter months, from late August to April.

The locations visited during the Northern Lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions. Because this tour is weather dependent, sightings are not guaranteed. However, if you don‘t see any Northern Lights during this tour, you are welcome to join the tour again, free of charge.

For the 2nd part we take to the ocean waves, sailing out from Reykjavík in search for the Aurora Borealis which is a unique experience, not to be missed!

It only takes us 10-15 minutes to sail into the dark, away from the city lights, to a perfect location for viewing the northern lights and the magical starry sky. Enjoy the peace and quiet out in the bay of Faxaflói.

An expert guide will explain the scientific facts about this natural phenomenon, share stories and myths from different cultures and answer any questions you might have during the tour. It is never guaranteed that the lights will show on the night – however, if you don’t see them you get a complimentary ticket to try again.

The boats are spacious with warm indoor seating areas, an onboard bar and plenty of space for everyone outside on deck to gaze into the night sky and you will provide you with free usage of warm overalls to keep you cost.

And we give you something a little extra!

Sometimes we will have to postpone the northern lights tour due to cloudy skies, but if that happens, instead of the evening going to waste, we have another activity all planned out for you on your booked night!

We head out to the Whales of Iceland exhibition in Grandi, just minutes away from the harbour area. Our guide will greet you and take you into the wonder world of the giant whales, where you will be able to view full sized models and try out some fun interactive technology!

Towards the end of the whale exhibition you will then be taken into a movie hall where we will show you a 25 minute video of the dancing northern lights full of beautiful imagery, facts and stories. Our guide will explain in further detail and answer any questions you might have.

We will finish the night with a drink on the house at the on-site café where you will also get the opportunity to explore the exhibition further.

Now – the best part is yet to come, you will also receive a complimentary ticket to try our northern lights boat tour at the next available date!

If you would like the tour based on a particular hotel we offer a wide range in our hotels section and we are of course happy to quote on any of these.

Transfers are not included in the price as some people prefer to hire a car or take a private transfer which we can arrange but the best way from the airport to your hotel in our opinion is the Flybus transfer from Keflavik airport to your hotel and back for just £39pp return.

Our prices are based on the cheapest departure date in any given month from the departure airport as stated and prices are subject to change according to availability.

Flights are available from London Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton, Stansted, London City, Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh & Belfast
