Get the best bang for your buck by combining a stunning kayaking tour on the Sólheimajökull glacier lagoon with an epic glacier hike. After meeting your expert guide at the Sólheimajökull Base next to the Sólheimajökull parking lot, you will get geared up with a drysuit and paddle for your kayaking adventure.
Following a short tutorial, you will set off on your sit-on-top kayak and paddle on the calm, iceberg-filled lagoon. During the hour-long tour, you will witness stunning icebergs and a view of the glacier inaccessible to people on land. After kayaking, you will return to our base camp for a half-hour break before you begin the next activity.
To prepare for your glacier walk, you will get an ice axe, crampons, harness and a short safety briefing from your guide. You will be led through an otherworldly icy landscape of stark contrasts on the glacier. The blue and white ice mixed with the dark volcanic ash from past eruptions is stunning. You will explore some of the many crevasses and ice sculptures of the glacier and learn about the area's geology and history.
Both tours suit all skill levels and are led by professional glacier and kayaking guides. You will receive all the necessary safety equipment for each activity.
