Sails, Lights & Winter Nights

dancing lights in total silence — powered by wind and electricity

The Northern Lights, Reykjavík City Lights and Yoko Ono’s Peace Tower—see them in a remarkable way from the electric-powered schooner Ópal. Enjoy a silent-running, eco-friendly cruise while listening to local guides, stories of the past, nearby islands and legendary lighthouses. Assist our crew with the rigging, enjoy organic delicacies prepared by our onboard chef, have a beer in the on-deck hot tub or sip a glass of wine by the fireplace below deck.

Dock Location:  Reykjavík Harbor – Vesturbugt, 10-minute walk from Reykjavík city center

If you are looking for things to do in Reykjavík at night there is nothing like taking a silent-running boat tour. Experience Reykjavík Iceland from the sea, enjoy hypnotic movements of the lights and—dare we say—maybe even turn off your phone for a while.

See you at the docks!
