No words can describe the feeling of observing the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) - this is something that you have to experience yourself!
The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis can be visible on a clear winter night and will light up the sky with green colour, often with touches of pink around the edges and occasionally ... morea deep violet centre. This often dramatic display is caused by the collision of charged particles from the sun with the Earth's magnetic field.
We will drive into the countryside well away from the city lights in search of the Aurora Borealis. The route we take may depend on the weather and road conditions each time.

Bring with you: Dress according to weather. In Iceland it is always wise to dress in warm, waterproof clothes. Weather changes can be sudden so expect the unexpected. Bring a waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves. Good outdoor shoes are recommended.

In-Bus-Audio-Guide: We recommend that you bring your own headphones, simply because they will fit you best. It is also great for the environment. If you don’t have your headphones, with you or forgot to bring them, no worries we sell earphones on board.

The tour commences at our ticket office in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik where you can exchange your pre-paid voucher for admission tickets. Merely steps away you will find ... moreour Visitor Centre, facilitated on board a converted fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier, which is where you will meet our crew for the day. Before (or after) the tour you can stroll through our souvenir shop, have a drink at the Whale Café or enjoy the onboard whale exhibition located in the hull of the boat. The show includes multimedia images and videos of whales as well as fun facts about the cetaceans and other marine animals we are likely to come across on the tour. From that point you will be show to our whale watching vessel where the tour takes place.

Once on board the tour boat you will find several outdoor viewing platforms, a large indoor saloon with an on board café where you can buy light refreshments, basic bathroom facilities and a cloak room where you can borrow one of our blankets or overalls on colder days. You can either stay outside in the fresh air but you are also welcome to stay inside the heated lounge and observe the views from within, through our large panoramic windows. One of our excellent guides will commentate on the sights and views at hand through the intercom system on board and will be available to you and happy to answer any questions you may have throughout the tour.

Summer season (1 April - 31 October) is great for whale watching, as the wildlife in the bay is at it's highest peak! This is the time when the Minke whales are at their most abundant, along with White-beaked dolphins, Harbour porpoises and the occasional Humpback whales, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment. Winter season (1 November - 31 March) is a whole other experience and adventure compared to our summer tours. Each year continues to surprise us with the wildlife it offers. The winter low lying sun is also something not to be missed, as it casts a warm glow over the white-capped mountains surrounding the bay and to breathe in the winter's fresh and crisp air is just incredible.

The most common cetacean in the area are the Minke whales, White-beaked dolphins and Harbour porpoises. Occasionally we spot other species including Humpback whales, Killer whales/Orcas, Fin whales and Blue whales to name but a few.

The weather can change quite frequently in Iceland and therefore we reserve the right to alter routes and itineraries by sailing from other harbours in the nearby area where the weather or sightings are more favourable each time, which could result in a slightly longer tour. Please consult with our ticket sales staff if you are on a tight schedule.

Please be aware that the tours are run in wild nature and we can never guarantee sightings on a particular tour. The estimated duration of tours are standard times and can change according to conditions at sea. Although our success rate is high, the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores.

We drive around the Tjornes peninsula. Reaching the northern tip of Jokulsargljufur national park we stop at Asbyrgi, a horseshoe shaped canyon. We continue south towards the Dettifoss – Europe's most powerful waterfall. Further east the drive takes us through the desert land of Modrudalsoraefi with views of Mt Herdubreid – considered to be one of the most beautiful mountains in Iceland. On our way further through Jokuldalur we can enjoy the view of numerous waterfalls that drop down from the top of the hills. The drive goes through Egilsstadir and the day ends in the East fjords. Accommodation in the area.

We drive along the East Fjords coastal road towards Hofn and continue along the Vatnajokull glacier and its outlets. At the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon an optional amphibian boat tour amongst the icebergs is available. Here we are also within walking distance of the sea. If lucky, we might spot a seal near the shore or even in the lagoon. The next stop will be Skaftafell national park – a green oasis surrounded by the glacier and the sands of glacial rivers. Here we have a chance for a walk through the park to Svartifoss waterfall. Overnight at a country hotel in the area of Skaftafell or Kirkjubaejarklaustur.

We travel across the sands of glacial rivers and lava fields towards the village Kirkjubaejarklaustur and further to Vik. Here we can observe the Reynisdrangar cliffs in the sea and the black sandy beach that stretches as far as the eye can see. We stop at Reynisfjara beach or Dyrholaey and continue towards Solheimajokull glacier and make a stop at Skogar with the impressive Skogafoss waterfall. At Thorvaldseyri we will visit the exhibition on the infamous volcano eruption of 2010. Further along the way another stop will be made at Seljalandsfoss waterfall and we end the day in in the area of Selfoss.

Today we have three more highlights to visit. First we drive to Gullfoss waterfall – the Golden Falls which drops in two cascades deep into the gorge of Hvita glacial river; we visit the Geysir geothermal area with an abundance of hot springs. We wait for the most active of the geysers, Strokkur, which spouts a steaming column of water into the air every 5-10 minutes. Continuing past Lake Laugarvatn we drive to Thingvellir national park, the site of the first parliament, founded in 930. Thingvellir was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site for its cultural value. The Lake with its surroundings is a place of great geological interest. We end the day at our accommodation in Reykjavik.
