Set out on a fantastic kayaking tour into the waters of the Heinaberg glacier lagoon for some incredible views of icebergs, the largest glacier in Europe, and some stunning mountains. Anyone with an adventurous experience looking for an unforgettable trip should hesitate to book their spot.

You’ll take this tour within Vatnajokull National Park, a breathtaking place in central Iceland named after its main glacier. You’ll meet your guide at the base camp at Flatey, and they’ll escort you to the edge of Heinaberg. Here, you’ll dress in a two-piece kayaking suit, boots, and a life jacket and receive your briefing on how to operate your vessel safely.

Heinaberg is a very little-known site, meaning there are will be few other travelers in the area. As such, you’ll be able to enjoy the peace and untouched nature of Iceland that so many come here seeking.

Once you begin to paddle, you’ll be blown away by the beauty of the site. Looking up, you’ll see magnificent mountains, around you are countless icebergs, and ahead of you is a spectacular glacier tongue. From close to water level, the grandeur of your surroundings is exaggerated and even more stunning.

Your guide will lead you forward through the bergs and into cracks in the ice cap. Very few experiences compare to this, as you’ll get to see a whole new side of these unique natural phenomena. The panoramas are simply breathtaking, and on still days, the scenery will reflect beautifully in the waters.

The kayaks are very stable, so even beginners can enjoy this tour.

After a fantastic adventure taken at a leisurely pace with plenty of time for photographs, you’ll return to shore, give back your equipment, and continue your experiences in the southeast of Iceland.

Paddle through icebergs and around a glacier tongue on this fantastic tour in Vatnajokull National Park. Check availability by choosing a date.
