Glacier Kayaking Iceland

Glacier Kayaking Iceland

Experience the freedom of floating on a glacier lagoon gliding in between icebergs that come from Vatnajökull, Icelands largest glacier. The Glacier Kayaking Iceland tour leads you on a hike to a glacier lagoon, followed with kayaking between ancient glacier icebergs, and finish by paddling back down the river to where you started from! The kayak is an inflatable boat called a packraft. Our packrafts are single-person boats that are extremely buoyant as they are a pontoon-style design, which also means they are incredibly stable. Packrafts are easy to paddle and there is very little chance that novice users will tip out. Weighing under 10kg including your drysuit, paddle and PFD, all of this equipment is very portable and easily carried in a backpack. You will be issued all of this equipment at the beginning of the tour, and you will need to carry the equipment in the backpack to the glacier lake. The walk to the lake is 2km long and takes approximately 30-40 minuets.
