On the morning of the trip the clouds filled all of Iceland so we wasn’t very optimistic but the crew told use the clouds are going to clear and they did. Then all of a sudden the lights started. And went on for a good while. I’ve never seen anything like it. The yacht is comfy and the crew was great. There’s a bar on board to buy drinks and snacks. The tour guide speaks English and called us every time the lights appeared so we didn’t have to stay out in the cold. This is s tour I recommend. But remember the lights are not always guaranteed but we was very lucky

We booked this trip that was delivered by and the whole experience was brilliant. There is a bar and the prices were very reasonable for Iceland. The crew seemed invested in everyone having a good experience and genuinely keen to see the Northern Lights. We were very lucky and saw a fantastic display, thanks to the captain who ‘sensed’ they would appear and stayed out after other boats returned to harbour. Our phone cameras were not the best and failed to capture the spectacle so Lucky, the lead guide, shared her photographs with us. Altogether a great experience that we would highly recommend.

Clouds and bad weather so it was canceled but because it was under the 24hr notice I did not get a refund. I advise to go directly to the company’s web site and book then you can be in direct communication with them 8nstead of third party

Thank you for taking the time to rate and review our tour. Weather is a big factor for the tour, if it gets canceled due to unfavorable weather we do offer a full refund. If the northern lights are not seen on the tour, we give our passengers a complimentary ticket to use another day. All the best Iceland Discover

Our guide, Lucky, was contagiously energetic and was able to provide us with a rich history and scientific explanation to the northern lights. It gets quite cold on the boat, so I would defintely layer up. The whole crew, engineer and captain included, were charismatic and had answers to any question you could have.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review -- I only just found it! I love being described as contagiously energetic! You are right that it gets very cold on the boat so that is great advice to wrap up. All the best, Lucky

The boat tour was a great start to our holiday! The boat had plenty of room so everyone could be comfortable inside if they got too cold. All the staff were welcoming and so helpful! We were lucky and did see a whale on our first visit, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and on the way back to Reykjavik she came round and asked if we had any questions.
Would definitely recommend!

We expected a comfortable experience in a relaxing environment. What we got was a very crowded and cramped boat. As such we felt we couldn’t leave our uncomfortable seats as some people were standing and we knew we would lose them. We didn’t see the northern lights, but that was pick of the draw. The crew were friendly, but the overall experience was extremely underwhelming and not as described. Very disappointing.

Oh I am so sorry you felt that way. The boat actually has seating for well over the number we take out, I was on the ship and that night the entire lower deck was empty, people just seemed to mass in the main bar. I am sorry you didn't take the opportunity to explore the entire ship! I hope you come out with us again, as we didn't find the lights you have free passes for the next three years.

I was so disappointed. I guess I thought I'd see the sky lit up in green.My pictures looked like a gray line in the sky! BUT, got excited when I heard the announcement that I could find all photos on line taken by a professional and his exceptional camera. I truly enjoyed seeing the wonderful pics!

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Sometimes the northern lights do look green to the naked eye, but we have to adjust our eyes to the dark first by not looking at bright lights like screens. Photographs always show the lights better as they allow more light in onto one image than our eyes can process, as we see many images every second. I am glad you got to see the lovely photos though!

This is a great way to see the Northern Lights. You will have time to walk around, talk, get drinks and snacks and watch the lights from the top deck of a beautiful yacht. I haven't tried other lights tours but this appealed to me because of the ability to move around, go inside if it's cold, get snacks and drinks and see the Reykjavik skyline from the water. It was beautiful and the lights were amazing.

The only down side is that I don't think you will see the lights as brilliantly as you will out in the middle of nowhere. We had some city lights the whole trip and I think that dimmed the Northern Lights a bit. I didn't mind but it's a consideration if you really want to see bright green lights. The upsides were the drinks, freedom to move around and the ability to watch from a top deck or go inside if you're cold.

Overall, I highly recommend this tour.

Thank you for this review, both for us and future customers. It will be super helpful for them. It is about a balance, and we hope that even if the lights don't show it is still a wonderful night out on a yacht - rather than just sitting in a bus all night when you might not see them either. I am thrilled you had such a brilliant time. Thank you again for your review.
