Northern Lights Tour
Join us for a mysterious trip, on a dark winter night. Any time from the onset of autumn darkness until the light nights of spring we can witness one of nature’s most spectacular displays; the phenomenon which we call the Northern Lights.
Far from the glow of the city lights, we hunt for the elusive Aurora Borealis – known as the Northern Lights. Together we will search for these magnificent auroras. On a clear night, we may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the sky in dramatic shapes, colours, patterns and sizes.
The Northern Lights are visible from September through April but can only be seen on a clear night. Therefore, we reserve the right to cancel this tour if the evening sky is heavily clouded or weather conditions are not favourable. A decision is taken daily at 6pm whether the tour will take place or not. All hotels and booking agents in Reykjavik are informed by email about our decision so please contact the front desk of your hotel or the tour desk at hotel Saga, Loftleidir and Hilton to find out whether we will be operating the tour. Before we start this tour we always check the weather forecast around the south western part of Iceland. From experience, we decide where each journey will lead us, for the best possibilities to see the Northern Lights.
Please note: We cannot guarantee sightings even if the tour is operated. In these cases we offer our customers a second tour free of charge.
Please note: Those that join the Northern Lights Mystery tour on 31 December may miss the fireworks in Reykjavik. The Northern Lights tour is a 3- to 5-hour tour and we cannot guarantee that we will be back in Reykjavik before midnight. If you do not want to miss the fireworks, please do not book this tour for 31 December!

Whale Watching Tour
Winter whale watching gives you a whole new experience and adventure than our summer tours. Each year continues to surprise us with the wildlife it offers. Herring and capelin being the main prey available attracting humpback whales, killer whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises to our shores. The winter low lying sun is also something not to be missed, as it casts a warm glow over the white-capped mountains and to breathe in the winters fresh, crisp air is just incredible.
The weather and thus sea conditions can be very challenging during the winter months; we adapt by moving our vessels to harbours of more sheltered areas situated around the Reykjanes peninsula and transport our passengers there free of charge from our base in the Old harbour. Our experience and flexibility allows for a more comfortable and reliable winter whale watching adventure.
Start/opening time: January to March and November to December. Duration: Between 3.5 and 5 hours Languages: English. Others: As the weather in Iceland can be quite unpredictable we sometimes move our boats to different locations for a more pleasant cruise. Going from other harbours means that we need to take a coach that can be anywhere from 20-60 minutes one way. Under these circumstances we can expect the tour to run anywhere between 3-5 hours. For a more enjoyable cruise this tour is weather dependent.
Golden Circle Tour
This popular excursion introduces you to some of the best known historical sites and natural phenomena in Iceland. We start by visiting Nesjavellir, a high temperature geothermal area in the scenic landscape of Lake Þingvallavatn. From there we go to the Þingvellir National Park, where the Icelandic parliament Alþingi was established in the year 930 AD. Þingvellir is geologically remarkable and the tectonic plate boundaries form a breathtaking scenery.
We continue to the beautiful waterfall Gullfoss, where we can walk so close to the edge that we might feel the mist of the glacial water on our faces. Our lunch break is usually at the Gullfoss Cafe. Sometimes we also stop for lunch at the Information Center at the geothermal area around Geysir. From there we journey towards the geothermal area around the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur. We proceed to Skálholt church, the ancient seat of the Icelandic bishops. From there we travel towards Hveragerði, a small and charming horticultural village.

One of the safest and cleanest cities of our times, Reykjavik is located on the south-west coast of Iceland and it is also the world’s northernmost capital city.
With more than 100 pubs and clubs, many of them situated on Laugavegur Street, a wide choice of beers - Icelanders national drink since 1989 - should water the mouth of any beer enthusiast. An iconic landmark of the city, the looming Hallgrimskirkja Church, offers visitors panoramic views of the city. Standing 15 metres high and weighing 25 tonnes, the church’s pipe organ is one of its key features, while the statue of Leifur Eiriksson, the first European to discover America, guards the entrance. The capital’s name translates to ‘Smoky Bay’ after the columns of steam that rise from hot springs, which can still be visited today.Options
