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 Opal. Onboard the guides will share interesting tales of the past while you enjoy the view of nearby islands and legendary lighthouses. Assist our crew with putting up the sails, enjoy refreshments from the crew, have a beer in the on-deck hot tub or sip a glass of wine by the fireplace below deck.

Highlights of the sailing tour:

THE NORTHERN LIGHTS – A great way to see them if they appear

REYKJAVÍK CITY LIGHTS – From a unique point of view

IMAGINE PEACE TOWER – Get closer to Yoko Ono’s vision*

THE ISLANDS OF FAXAFLÓI BAY – Lit up with history and folklore

THE NEARBY LIGHTHOUSES – Tales of fishing, life and death

*select dates decided by Yoko herself

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!
