Experience the ultimate trip exploring Vatnajökull National Park with this thrilling tour. You'll go kayaking on one of Iceland’s tranquil lagoons, Heinabergslón, before embarking on an introductory glacier walk. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for repeat visitors to the national park, as well as all those looking to add elements of adventure and adrenaline to their holiday whilst on the South Coast.

Sitting back in your own kayak, you will be privy to stunning panoramas of the Vatnajökull National Park, as well as see the Heinabergslón lagoon’s iconic ice sheets like never before. Kayaking makes for a far more peaceful method of discovering Iceland’s glaciers lagoons rather than, say, a speedy Zodiac boat tour, allowing you plenty of opportunities to chill as you take in the wondrous sights around you. 

This tour is particularly suited to newcomers to Kayaking, given the fact that you will be riding in a sit-on-top kayak. These kayaks are far wider, and thus, more stable than the average kayak, making them easy and fun to handle.

Throughout your tour experience in Vatnajökull National Park, you will be led by experienced, friendly and qualified guides who will be eager to share with you their knowledge on the area’s culture, geology and history. 

Not only will you be kayaking on this adventure, you will also have the opportunity to partake in a little glacier hiking. Fear not if this is another new experience for you; your guide will be with you every step, providing all necessary equipment including helmets and crampons. Your guide will also teach you the fundamentals of ice-walking before taking to the glacier. 

So what are you waiting for? Hurry now and you too can experience Heinabergslón glacial lagoon from your very own kayak, as well as try your hand at walking on the ice. Check availability by choosing a date.
