Cut time and expense on your holiday to Iceland by combining a kayaking tour on the Sólheimajökull glacier lagoon with an added glacier walk, one of the most thrilling activities available in Iceland. By booking both tours together you get the full glacier experience and save money.

Your first activity is the glacier lagoon kayaking tour. You will meet your guide at a Base Camp, next to the Sólheimajökull parking lot. The lagoon is only a short walk from the Base Camp, once there 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. Thankfully, kayaks are among the most peaceful vessels, allowing you to maintain a sense of serenity throughout your hour on the water. 

After you finish your kayaking tour you go back to the base camp where 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 otherworldly glacier landscape of stark contrasts - 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. This is definitely one place that you won’t want to forget your camera. 

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 - a dry suit for your kayaking tour and crampons, ice axe and a harness for your glacier walk. Check availability by choosing a date.
