ShoreTrips says...

Prepared to be rendered speechless. The moment the sky is filled with brightly dancing lights, haunting and magical, you'll find yourself searching for words to describe this beautiful, elusive spectacle.

Of all the things on your bucket list, seeing the Northern Lights, (also known as the Aurora Borealis) should be close to the top. This phenomenon of nature, created when charged particles from the sun strike atoms in Earth's atmosphere, is so much more than its scientific explanation.

Step aboard this warm and comfortable boat, perfect for our mission. With an an outdoor viewing platform and an indoor salon, you're sure to find great viewing from every angle. We'll head out of town, away from the city lights to Faxaflói Bay, where the Northern Lights shine brightly.

Although there are no guarantees the Northern Lights will be visible on the night you visit, rest assured that they appear often in this area of the world.

“If the solar winds have stirred far off in the velvety night then showers of light --gold and violet. rose and green--paint the sky.” Kathleen Valentine
