Combine Iceland’s Iconic South Coast Sights With Kayaking

During this South Coast tour, you can get away from the crowds and view the glacier features from a perspective that few others are able to enjoy. Paddling among the always-changing icebergs of this newly formed glacier lagoon, gives you a first-hand experience of the massive glacial retreat in recent years. Our Sit-on-Top kayaks are very stable, and do not require prior kayaking experience. Before boarding, your certified kayaking guides will teach you the basic paddling technique and provide you with a dry suit. Whilst on this drive from Reykjavík, we also give you the opportunity to visit the picturesque waterfalls of Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.

Truly an experience of a lifetime which only few places in the world offer.

Combine Iceland’s Iconic South Coast Sights With Kayaking

Your adventure along the South Coast of Iceland begins when you hop on the tour bus, at the designated pickup locations in downtown Reykjavík.

We head out of the city heading South, travelling past the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano, which erupted back in 2010 towards your adventure activity destination.

At Sólheimajökull glacier, you will meet up with your professional kayaking guide. You will receive a safety briefing, a dry suit, a paddle and instructions on how to navigate our very stable sit-on-top kayaks.
