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 the rigging, 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.
