Northern Lights Exploration Sailing

Imagine yourself on a boat in the middle of Skjálfandi Bay with the northern lights dancing above you in the sky.

North Sailing has more than 20 years of experience sailing in Skjálfandi bay. Now for the first time we offer our guests to join us on the boats to see the Northern lights in the darkest time of the year.

The boat will depart from Húsavík harbor and take you to the magnificent Skjálfandi bay. While in the search for this unique display of lights in the night sky we will make sure your experience will be as enjoyable and as memorable as possible.

Enjoy the smooth winter sailing on a traditional Icelandic oak boat while listening to the sounds of nature and look into the sky without the disturbance from the city lights.

During the sailing, our experienced crew will tell you stories about the northern lights, give you more information about the area and serve you refreshments.

We also want to make sure everybody will be warm onboard so all our guests will be provided with warm overalls.

Come and join us, relax and get carried away for a little while.
