Description

Combine a kayaking tour on the Sólheimajökull glacier lagoon with a glacier walk.

Your first activity is the glacier lagoon kayaking tour. You will receive your kayaking equipment and get a tutorial from your professional guide on how to sail your stable Sit-On-Top kayak. Once ready, you will start your hour-long tour around the lagoon, paddle around the dynamic and always changing icebergs, and admire the glacier tongue from a viewpoint inaccessible to the sightseers on foot.

After you finish your kayaking tour you have a half-hour lunch break before you begin the next activity. Now, you go up on the glacier tongue where your guide will lead you through the glacier landscape with blue and white ice mixed with the dark volcanic ash from past eruptions. You will explore some of the many crevasses and ice sculptures of the glacier and learn about the geology and the history of the area.

Both tours are suitable for all skill levels and are led by professional and certified glacier guides. You will receive all the necessary safety equipment.
