Siglufjordur is Iceland’s northernmost mainland town, located on a fjord of the same name. It’s known for its culture and nature and is an excellent place to add to your North Iceland itinerary.

Your excursion begins at the Nordurtangi harbor at the south end of Siglufjordur town. You’ll meet your expert stand-up paddle-boarding guide, ready to start your adventure there.

The experienced tour leader will show you the basics of stand-up paddle boarding. Previous experience isn’t necessary, and you’ll quickly get the hang of this enjoyable activity. 

Your guide will show you simple techniques for controlling your board and keeping you safe on the water. The calm waters of Siglufjordur make it easy to relax on your board and enjoy a meditative-like experience.

Some participants find it easy to stay balanced and remain on their board throughout the tour. If you do fall in, you’ll be well-prepared wearing a buoyancy aid, dry suit, fleece undersuit, neoprene socks, and rugged boots to keep you warm. 

Paddling across the fjord rewards you with stunning views of mountains, cliffs, and the abundant birdlife. This area is home to several bird species, including arctic terns, eider ducks, white-tailed eagles, and black-headed gulls.

The mountains are steep and high, a dramatic sight to behold as you paddle by. If you bring your camera, you can capture some spectacular photos for lasting memories of the breathtaking scenery and your paddle-boarding experience.

Outdoor activities like paddle boarding offer numerous physical and mental health benefits. Feel your stresses and worries melt away as you glide across the water, breathing in the fresh air. 

Paddle boarding is the perfect mood-boosting activity and doesn’t need to be overly strenuous. You can move fast or slow, approaching it as a calming excursion or an exciting adventure. The choice is yours!

After a glorious paddle around the Siglufjordur fjord, you’ll finish back at the harbor. From there, you can spend the rest of your evening as you wish. If you’ve worked up an appetite, head to one of the town’s restaurants to enjoy a meal and reflect on your enjoyable paddle-boarding experience.
