Sails, Lights & Northern Lights

Winter sailing tour from Reykjavík

Set sail on electric schooner Opal to enjoy a perspective of Reykjavík rarely seen. The city lights, northern lights and Yoko Ono's Peace tower (seasonal) will light-up the sky while we sail in silence among nearby island and listen to stories from the past, folklore and stories of fishing and life. On the tour you'll get a chance to assist the crew putting up sail, enjoy refreshments or have a drink by the fireplace below deck. Additionally, you can add a visit to the on-deck hot tub.

Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, therefore sights cannot be guaranteed.
