Viðey offers you change in pace for your Northern Lights expedition. The island is only a few min. away from the heart of Reykjavík's city centre and provides a great view of the city from a different angle as it is dark and quiet. This is possibly the most intimate and remote Northern Lights walking tour in Iceland!

Available: Upon request (1 October - 14 March)
Min: 10 fully paying participants
Max: 20 participants
Time: 21:00
Duration: 1,5-2,5 hrs.

Stop by our ticket office in the Old Harbour and exchange your pre-paid voucher for admission tickets. Our sales staff will direct you down the road to where you will meet the crew and guide for the evening. Spend only about 20 minutes sailing from the city centre to Viðey, where darkness and serenity of the island will greet you. The island itself is mostly absent from artificial lighting (apart from a few lamp posts), and as it has been uninhabited since the 1950's it is mysterious and quite an interesting place to visit. 

Take in the scenery, nature and history of the island as we walk around in search of the northern lights and optimal photography spots. Enjoy a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate while our expert guide assists you with capturing the auroras. Taking photos of the art work or buildings of the island with the lights in the background adds that something special to your pictures - it could be anything from the stunning blue light of the Imagine Peace Tower, the oldest stone building in Iceland or even yourself! The island also provides an incredible 360° panoramic view of the capital city, Imagine Peace Tower, the island itself, mountain ranges and some of the oldest buildings in Iceland. Join us on a journey into the unknown.. Explore and experience all that nature has to offer on this intimate, mysterious tour!
