Auroras at Whales of Iceland

Unfortunately the weather in Iceland does not always cooperate, so we have an alternative activity already prepared for this evening!

Auroras at Whales of Iceland is a Northern Lights themed visit to the spectacular Whales of Iceland Exhibition, very close to the Old Reykjavik Harbour. The visit includes a guided tour of the 23 life-sized models of all whale species found around Iceland and our BRAND NEW 25 min. Northern Lights documentary. The documentary features beautiful footage, facts, myths and stories about the Northern Lights and is displayed on an 8 meter  long screen beneath a life-size fin whale model. After the film you have a chance to have a Q&A session with your guide and a complimentary drink of your choice is available at the bar.

Now - the best part , you then get to keep your ticket for the Northern Lights by Boat tour to be booked for the next available night!

Please note that this tour is non-refundable as you are guaranteed an adventure on your booked night and you get to keep your ticket for the Northern Lights by Boat tour for the next available night.  

Northern Lights by Boat

Sailing out from Reykjavik in search for the Northern Lights is a unique experience, not to be missed! It only takes us about 15-20 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 on a Northern Lights cruise.

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.

Our boats are spacious with warm indoor seating areas, an on-board bar and plenty of space for everyone outside on deck to gaze into the night sky. We will provide you with free usage of warm overalls to keep you warm and cozy on the winter nights.
