Don’t miss out on your opportunity to experience the “Crown Jewel of Iceland”, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, all from your very own kayak! Truly, this is an amazing and unique chance to explore one of Iceland’s most beloved natural sites, all the while partaking in a gentle, but incredibly fun boating trip. What’s not to love?

For those who are concerned about kayaking (particularly those who have never tried the sport before), there is absolutely no reason to fear. This excursion is fully guided by a knowledgeable, qualified and English-speaking tour leader who will be quick not only to provide you with all necessary equipment, including a dry suit, kayak and paddles, but will also teach you about the area’s incredible culture and history.

As an added security, this tour only uses SIT ON TOP kayaks, a particular type that is far wider than usual, thus more stable. You will have the option to ride in a kayak with a buddy, or go solo. 

Kayaking atop the lagoon’s gentle, still surface, you will pass a wealth of fantastical sights; with Arctic terns and skuas flying overhead, and seals bobbing gently in the water around you, you’ll have trouble decided where to look—the picturesque scenery? The vibrant wildlife? The astonishing floating icebergs? Nowhere else in Iceland can match Jökulsárlón for its eclectic beauty. 

After your time kayaking on the lagoon is over, you are recommended to check out the nearby Diamond Beach, found only a few minutes walk away from the lagoon. Here, icebergs that float out from Jökulsárlón often washed ashore onto the beach’s black volcanic sands, making for a fantastic, stark contrast in colour. 

So, time to paddle up-creek with this fantastic kayaking tour at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, one of the most beautiful natural sites to be found in Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
