AURORA REYKJAVIK & NORTHERN LIGHTS CRUISE
Choose your moment in the day to visit Aurora Reykjavík, Iceland’s first and only Northern Lights Center. Take a walk through history and learn about mythology around the Arctic circle. Explore the science via interactive displays and try your camera settings in the unique Northern Lights photo simulator. Aurora Reykjavík’s trump card is its fantastic HD time-lapse movie of the Aurora Borealis. Sit back in bean bags and enjoy this 30-minutes film with dazzling aurora displays captured all over Iceland. Immerse yourself completely into the Northern Lights with the world’s first 360° film of the Aurora Borealis, featured in VR goggles.
Having learned all about the aurora borealis and taken in the lights at Aurora Reykjavík’s exhibition, it’s time to try the real thing with a Northern Lights Tour by Boat. Come evening, you’ll embark from the Old Harbour of Reykjavík and see the auroras on the North-Atlantic with the city lights in the background – something you won’t forget! Our expert guide will help you to search for the lights while telling you all about the science, legends and myths that surround this amazing natural phenomenon. You are welcome to spend time inside our cafeteria enjoying a warm drink and you won’t miss a thing, thanks to our speaker system. When the guide sees the lights, they will announce it on the speaker system so everyone knows to head outside and look up!
The friendly crew take photos on every tour that are available to download in the following days at no extra charge. They are also happy to assist with camera settings to give you the best chance of capturing the auroras.
