    See the incredible beauty of the Northern Lights in both style and comfort on board a luxurious yacht. This tour is perfect for those looking for an awe-inspiring experience watching the celestial display of the Aurora Borealis. You'll meet your captain and the crew at Reykjavík's Old Harbour where you'll board the luxury yacht, known as Amelia Rose. The ship is designed as an offshore vessel, making it better adapted to take on turbulent waters, so you'll get a smoother sail with less probability of experiencing nausea or seasickness. During your journey, you will sail among the small islands in the Faxaflói Bay, and along the coast of Reykjavík before the yacht begins making its way away from the lights of the city, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the Northern Lights to the fullest. The panoramic triple deck area allows every passenger to enjoy the breathtaking colours of the auroras, and to capture some amazing photos of the green, pink and white lights. The tour is also conducted in a small group, so your experience will be both personal and memorable. If there is rain or wind, don't worry! The decks are partially covered to provide shelter from the elements, and you can easily circle these decks to get the best view of the Aurora Borealis. If, however, you wish to stay inside during the hunt for the Northern Lights, you will find a lovely bar and lounge area inside where you can relax in comfort.  In case the northern lights do not show up, you don't have to worry because you can try again for free on the next available departure. Take to the sea on a luxurious yacht to see the Northern Lights in both style and comfort.

    Really good experience. Crew were lovely. Even though we didn’t see the lights the crew went above and beyond to make it a special experience.

    We booked this trip through Sea Trips Northern Lights based on previous reviews, and were not disappointed. We arrived at the offices to be greeted by the staff, after checking in and a quick chat we boarded the yacht. It was everything promised, the saloon area was cosy and

    The lights didn’t come out for play for us, but the boat trip was nice. Really warm inside with a nice bar and plenty of space to sit down; didn’t feel crowded. Staff were lovely too. It would have been nice to have some sort of announcement that we were heading back and

    Thankyou so much for taking the time to come on here and review us. I am sorry you didn't get to see the aurora, but you tickets are valid for three years until you see them with us. Just drop an email if you are coming through! Thankyou for saying such nice things about our staff and ship. I am glad you seemed to have a pleasant evening, and it's good you saw the peace tower, it's not long till that is turned off for the year! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here in Iceland. All the best.

    The trip was cancelled due to poor weather, and we were asked to get back in touch with them. On calling, they didn't pick up the call, and there were several back and forth text messages. Eventually, we rescheduled it for the next day (again several messages later.. They didn't

    Response from Sea Trips A, guide at Northern Lights On Board a Luxury Yacht from Reykjavik
    Responded 26 Oct. 2019
    I am sorry for you experience with us, we are a small family run company, we do try to answer the phone but when the office isn't manned it goes through to a private number and we can't always get to it right away. The day you came onto the boat we only had 40 passengers, so no where near the capacity of 70 hence there was plenty of seating. As to the guide not coming through straight away it is because as soon as the intro in the main saloon was done people came to the bar and she had to help her other crew member get through that rush before coming through to talk to the second room. I am sorry you weren't told about the rebooking, she actually goes around and tries to talk to everyone personally before arriving back to explain this and also to explain how we share photos too. I am sorry you were missed in that! Your tickets are valid for another 3 years so please come back and try to see the northern lights again. We've had some amazing shows this weekend, so hopefully next time you'll see them better! Thankyou for taking the time to review us, it is the only way we can improve and the entire speaker system is brand new, we are getting another speaker placed into the forward lounge. All the best.
