Tour description

Glacier Lagoon Kayaking

Jökulsárlón is considered one of the most beautiful natural wonders of Iceland. Paddling the Glacier Lagoon provides an outstanding experience and gives participants a magnificent view of the ice cap and the vast dome of ice that rises above.
 

Come with us on this unique journey where we paddle amongst floating icebergs and wildlife, seals, and birds.

This tour is for those who want to be environmentally friendly while exploring nature. 

Kayaking 

The tour is fully guided, and all participants are provided with a two-piece suit and all other necessary equipment. Our Kayaks are SIT-ON-TOP boats, very stable, and should be suitable for persons who have not gone kayaking before.

Time on the boat is approximately 1 hour.

Requirements 

Reasonable fitness is required for this tour.

Oversized people can expect to have problems fitting the suits and be unable to participate in the tour. For safety reasons, participants cannot exceed 120 kg (270 lbs) in weight for single kayaks (kayak for one person) or 180 kg (395 lbs) combined weight for double kayaks (kayak for 2 persons).

The age limit is 14 years old.

Booking

Please note that we accept 2 single kayaks per tour for safety reasons. If we had more bookings than 2 for the single kayaks, we would kindly ask the participants to go on a tandem boat instead of the single one. 1 single kayak is for 1 person. 1 tandem kayak is for 2 people. 

Please book a boat accordingly. 

Meeting Point 

Meet us in our small box van at Jökulsárlón. We have all our equipment in our van, and we suit up before heading out onto the water. Our van is located at the Glacier Lagoon main parking lot and is thoroughly marked Iceguide.

We kindly ask you to be at the meeting point on time. We recommend arriving at least 15 min before the scheduled departure time. Unfortunately, late arrivals will miss out on their reservation, resulting in the cancellation of your booking and the total forfeiture of your booking fee.
