- Sea Kayaking 

This is one of our all- time classic day tours from Reykjavík. It offers sea kayaking on either the beautiful Hvalfjörður fjord or the historic Thingvallavatn Lake. Sea Kayaking tours are very weather dependent, therefore by using these two fantastic locations we can minimize cancelations due to wind. Our kayaks are very stable and easy to use. The small groups make it possible to never have more then 6 kayakers for every guide. There is no need for prior kayaking experience due to the certified kayak guides' excellent instruction. 

The Hvalfjörður fjord (literal translation: Whalefjord) is a deep fjord, created by the ice age glaciers, with steep 1000 meter tabletop mountains reaching for the sky. Imagine kayaking in the North Atlantic ocean where the allied troops hid their submarines and battle ships during WWII.

Please note:  Sea kayaking tours on open water like the Fjord Serenity are dependent on weather conditions and wave forecast. Like all outdoor adventures we reserve the right to cancel or change you itinerary at any point with your safety in mind. If your kayaking tour is canceled by us before it starts you will receive a FULL refund and our assistance in finding another adventure to fill your day. 

Also note: Due to limited capacity and our small groups policy this tour sells frequently we recommend that you book this tour well in advance.

* What is a BCU 4 star kayak guide?
Successful guiding performance at this level indicates that the guide has the personal skill level 
and leadership ability required to lead a group of paddlers, on short (6 to 8 miles, of at least 
3 hours paddling), single or multi-day journeys in a moderate tidal water environment with 
winds not exceeding Beaufort Force 4. The BCU 4 Star Leader has the skills and judgement 
to select appropriate environments for paddlers with a range of experience. 
The BCU 4 Star Leader Award is a leadership award and not a coaching award. What does that mean in English? Simply that we only employ the best sea kayak guides you can find.

What is kayaking? Our sea kayaks are the best open water kayaks available. They are closed boats so no water gets into them (they are not canoes). You glide peacefully through the water, powered by your paddle strokes. You will be wearing a lifejacket; a specially made dry jacket and wet pants that will keep you warm even in the harshest off circumstances. Almost anyone can go on a kayak tour with us in Iceland. Our kayak guides will teach you everything you need to know. They will also paddle with you and are always in reach if anything should happen or if you simply have a question about the scenery!
