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 hybrid-electric schooner Opal. Onboard the guides will share interesting tales of the past while you enjoy the view of nearby islands and legendary lighthouses.

Highlights of the sailing tour:

REYKJAVÍK CITY LIGHTS – From a unique point of view

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

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

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

Location: Meeting point for the tour is here at Ingólfsgarður, behind Harpa Concert Hall.

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!
