Watch the amazing Northern Lights from a boat far from the bright city lights. Specially designed viewing decks provide the perfect platform for watching the dazzling display of Northern lights. Should you get cold, the heated indoor lounge is a great place to take a break and warm up in between sightings
Watching the lights constantly change in intensity, colour and movement in the vast starry space with the gentle lull of the ocean beneath is a thrilling, unique experience.
This Northern Lights Cruise takes you out sailing from Reykjavik's Old Harbour, where you'll get a chance to take in the magical Aurora display in the dark blue yonder of Faxaflói bay.
Northern lights are best displayed under dark, clear skies. Our open top viewing decks provide the perfect platform for witnessing the dazzling spectacle while our heated indoor lounge is a great place to take a break and warm up in between sightings.
A guide will meet you in the Whale Watching Centre, which is facilitated on board an old fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier. At night it takes on a magical form with a multimedia northern lights show. The 10 minute show includes images, time-lapse footage of the lights while explaining the science behind the northern lights.
Our expert guide will be at hand to answer your questions while you enjoy Mother Nature’s light show and starry skies wrapped up in one of our warm overalls.

Thank you for submitting review
Well organised trip, easy booking process. Thanks
We were supposed to be collected from our assigned bus stop but were not...another grayling bus pulled up and told us the tour was cancelled so we walked back to our hotel who then rung greyline and were told the tour was not cancelled we were just forgotten about, they then sent someone to collect us
They were helpful in personally sorting out a pick-up questions
No problem booking at all and when I had mistakenly put the wrong hotel in for a pick up Grayline sorted it straightaway brilliant service
Tour was cancelled due to weather the three days I was in Iceland. Gray Line did a good job of informing me it was cancelled.
All the staff were really friendly, organised and the tours were professional. I would have no problem recommending Grey Line to anyone looking to go on tours in Iceland.
Very easy to book and correct informative information about the trip
I was fortunate to have Halli as a guide for both the Delicious Golden Circle Tour as well as the South Iceland Tour. He has a great personality and is very knowledgable making each tour entertaining. He also made great recommendations for sites near my hotel to see and eat. I would definitely come back.
We booked the northern lights cruise and had a very clear December evening. There was about 30 mins amazing lights activity, then the rest of the cruise you could see loads of stars, including constallations we don't see at home. We wore the body suits provided over our coats and were toasty warm, despite it being -8C. Commentary was in English and very informative and the staff were very helpful to the numpties who thought they could get a photo of a night time phemonena with their camera flash on. We have booked this cruise on a previous visit when the weather was poor, and received a refund as the sailing wasn't possible.
Tour cancelled with no notice or email. Was waiting out in cold and ruined my plans while out there.
Very professional tour prompt hotel pick up, boat crew great, supplied cold weather wear. Alberto very knowledgeable on northern lights. Great views of Reykjavik harbour. Recommended Best way to see the northern lights.
