Immerse yourself in Iceland's nature under the glow of the midnight sun on this 2.5-hour nighttime kayaking tour in the Eastfjords. Travelers keen for an enchanting experience on tranquil waters should book this summer kayaking trip now.

Your night kayaking excursion runs during summer when the sun never completely sets. This phenomenon is called the midnight sun. It casts a beautiful golden glow across the landscape, extending your sightseeing possibilities into the night!

Your kayaking trip begins at 23:00 o'clock in Djupivogur, the southernmost town in the Eastfjords.

Djupivogur is on a peninsula between two fjords, the Berufjordur fjord on the south side and the Hamarsfjordur fjord on the north side. The Alftafjordur inlet is just south of Hamarsfjordur and also forms part of Djupivogur's coastline.

An expert kayaking guide will lead you on your tour. They will discuss the exact meeting point with you beforehand.

You could visit any of Djupivogur's fjords, depending on what suits the group. The excursion is for a maximum of 15 participants, so you'll enjoy excellent interaction with your guide and a high-quality experience.

The guide will give you waterproof overalls and gloves to help keep you warm during your adventure. You should wear warm clothes underneath and bring a water bottle.

Prior experience isn't necessary for this trip. Your guide will give you a kayak and paddle before showing you the basic paddling technique. Then, you'll set off around the fjord's calm waters for a mesmerizing tour under the midnight sun.

There's no rush and you can kayak at your chosen pace, taking your time to bask in your incredible surroundings. You'll have 1.5-2 hours on the water, allowing for a relaxed experience exploring the fjord.

You'll enjoy gorgeous scenery and a peaceful atmosphere regardless of which fjord you paddle on. Notice how quiet the night is in this remote part of the country, and feel your senses come alive amid the serene environment.

Listen to the water gently lapping against the boat's sides and feel the cool breeze. Marvel at the striking mountain peaks reflecting on the water's surface and the sun's glow low on the horizon, a picture-perfect setting.

You can bring your camera to capture photos for lasting memories. Just ensure it's in a waterproof case for protection. Alternatively, your guide can take pictures of you for an extra fee so you can focus entirely on the experience.

After your spectacular excursion, you'll return the kayak, paddle, and waterproof gear and say farewell to your guide. From there, you're free to continue your adventures in Iceland.
