Report from Eldey: We sailed out to the windy night from the Old Harbour . It was not too cold but we still provided everyone warm overalls just to enjoy the tour properly. There was a layer of high and some mid-level clouds but they were moving fast which gave us hope of the sky clearing up more. We set up our cameras and kept observing the sky for any possible signs for lights starting. After 1,5 hours there was still no aurora activity and suddendly, out of nowhere, it got very cloudy and even started raining a little. That's a great example of how fast weather can change in Iceland but of course not great for our northern lights hunt. We started sailing back to Reykjavik eventually as it didn't seem like the conditions were going to get better. Northern lights are out of our control but we want to do everything in our power to provide our passengers opportunities to see auroras. Therefore we gave everyone a complimentary ticket allowing to come on another northern lights cruise for free within the next two years. Hopefully we'll get to show our passengers the amazing auroras next time!
