Tour description

Calm Water Kayaking in Ísafjörður


Calme Water Kayaking in Ísafjörður is a wonderful experience for beginners and veterans alike, this tour takes you paddling just beneath the magnificent mountains that tower over our small town. This trip is a perfect half-day activity. Experience the majesty of our fjord from a unique angle.

Our guides will be sure to tell stories of history, folklore and life in a small town close to the arctic circle. During the summer, we can expect to see many sea birds, including Oystercatchers, Arctic Terns, Eider ducks and, of course, the curious colony of seals who call Ísafjörður their home.

The journey begins at our base at Mávagarður C (grey building), where you meet your guide and gear up. We then walk down to the shore behind the old houses in Neðstikaupstaður, where we have a short safety briefing and paddling lesson.

And then we’re off! We explore the fjord keeping a good lookout for various bird species and seals. We spend approximately 2 hours on the water before returning to our base at Mávagarður C.
