Akureyri Northern Lights Cruise
Season: 1st of September to the 156th of April, Daily Duration: 2 hours
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 a comfortable journey aboard our newest addition to our boat fleet.
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!
