Kayaking by Solheimajokull glacier

Easy Kayking on the calm Solheimajokull Glacier Lagoon

This tour starts with meeting your kayaking guide in the Sólheimjökull glacier parking lot. You will be equipped with a dry suit and shown the basic technique needed to maneuver the kayak. The sit-on-top kayaks that we use are easy to steer and no previous kayaking experience is needed. As you push away from the shore, you will enter a world of iceberg filled lagoon. The spellbinding glacial landscape and calm waters will make you feel like you have been transported into another world. You will be will be leaded by your guide around the glacier and in between icebergs to admire these natural wonders from a perspective that can only be seen while on the water. After gliding along the still surface of the lagoon for a period of time, you’ll head back to shore with a lifetime of memories.
