Akureyri Northern Lights Cruise One-day tour

Our partner: Elding Adventure at Sea


The Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, are a natural phenomena typically seen on a dark but clear skied night. Green, purple, pink and white lights dance on the horizon frequently changing their shape and colour. It is perhaps natures most fascinating displays of artistry!

Available: 1 September - 15 April
Time: 21:00
Duration: 1,5-2,5 hrs.

It's dark, you're outside and everything is quiet. A flicker of light in the sky grabs your attention. Pale and modest at first, soon intense and vibrant, transforming the dark sky into a mighty display of nature's power. It’s hypnotic but perhaps strangest of all; there is complete silence, while cascades of green, yellow, violet and red dance across the sky in silent harmony. It is like a mighty symphonic ballet with muted sound. This is a great way to experience the magic of the Northern Lights while you enjoy the comfortable journey onboard.

Meet us at the floating pier Oddeyrarbót 2, next to the cultural centre HOF in Akureyri at least 15 min. prior to departure.
