Glacier kayaking is the ultimate way to experience the magnificence of the world famous Vatnajökull National Park. Join us in an unforgettable trip and enjoy unbeatable panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers reflected upon the mirror-like water of the Heinaberg Lagoon. From the lagoon, you have an excellent view over Vatnajokull and on the tour we do set foot on the glacier as well – of course safely equipped with the appropriate glacier gear. Heinabergslón is “out of the beaten path”, so no other traffic on the water.

The trip is fully guided by guides with a vast knowledge of the area, its history, hidden spots – and of course kayaking. The Glacier Kayak Adventure suits kayakers with no paddling experience to experienced paddlers. Our Kayaks are SIT-ON-TOP boats, very stable and should be suitable for persons who have not gone kayaking before.

You can choose between single person kayak or two person kayak, children age 14-16 always ride with adult person age 17+ in two person kayak.
