Kayak through a magnificent fjord from the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri! Anyone hoping to marvel over incredible seascapes, witness an abundance of seabirds and perhaps even whales, and embark on a thrilling excursion should not hesitate to book this tour.
You’ll start the trip by reaching the easy-to-find meeting point behind the central Hof culture house, where your friendly guides will be waiting. You’ll be escorted to the departure pier, equipped with a life jacket, a drysuit, gloves, shoes, and a paddle, and briefed on the plan. Even if you are a total beginner, you’ll be sure to pick it up with the equipment and help!
Once you are ready, you’ll set out onto the still seas of Eyjafjordur. This magnificent fjord is surrounded by breathtaking mountains of epic proportions, making every moment of the trip unforgettable. Don’t worry about getting tired, as your pace will be casual, although if you are more experienced and want a little race around, you are welcome to.
Adding to the experience will be the countless birds diving and fluttering around you, which will include puffins between May and September.
The seas of north Iceland are pregnant with sea life, however, so there is a great chance of seeing other animals on your trip. Most likely are humpback whales, renowned for their acrobatic surface behavior, and white-beaked dolphins, which gather in great pods, but Iceland has around two dozen species of whale, dolphin, and porpoise, any of which could show up! You also have the chance of spotting seals.
After a magical time on the water, you’ll be escorted back to the pier to return your gear and enjoy the rest of the day in Akureyri and north Iceland.
