Description

Experience the perfect body and mind rejuvenation with a private two-hour guided stand-up paddle boarding tour in the evening. Travelers seeking active relaxation and breathtaking natural scenery in North Iceland should book their place now.

Your stand-up paddle boarding session begins when you meet your expert tour guide at the harbor at the south end of Siglufjordur town. They’ll set you up with the equipment you need to enjoy the experience fully, including a buoyancy aid, dry suit, fleece undersuit, neoprene socks, and rugged boots.

This evening you’ll have the opportunity to explore the calm waters of the fjord on a stand-up paddle board. Stand-up paddle boards look similar to surfboards, only they’re longer, wider, and thicker, making them easy to stand on in still water.

Paddleboarding has surfing roots, but it’s much easier to learn. While paddle boarding, you’ll use a paddle to pull yourself through the water. Only a basic level of balance is needed to enjoy this activity, and you must be able to swim and feel comfortable in the water.

Your paddle-boarding instructor will show you the basics of how to move and control your board. Then it’s time to glide across the pristine waters of the Siglufjordur fjord and immerse yourself in a meditative-like experience.

Because this is a private tour, you can take things as easily as you like. The guide will work with your group's needs to create a tailored and unforgettable excursion.

You might want to move gently, focusing on a serene and peaceful experience. Or, you may be keen to cover a greater area and treat it more like a physical activity. The choice is yours. 

In any case, stand-up paddle boarding is a glorious way to discover the beauty of Siglufjordur.

The fjord boasts stunning nature and wildlife. Watch for birds such as arctic terns, eider ducks, white-tailed eagles, and black-headed gulls as you bask in the midnight sun. Alongside the awe-inspiring mountain views, the whole picture is a feast for the eyes.

You’ll feel your senses come alive while paddle boarding. Breathe the fresh air, watch the water ripple as you move effortlessly, and feel your body relax as you immerse yourself in the natural world. Paddle boarding is one activity where your to-do list and worries will drift far away to the back of your mind.

Perhaps you’ll remain standing on your board throughout the excursion. If you fall in or decide to jump in, you’ll stay warm in your dry suit.

After a fantastic evening session on your board, you’ll return to the start point at the harbor. Try out one of the delicious restaurants in Siglufjordur town or retreat to your accommodation for a restful night’s sleep.

Discover the tranquility and incredible nature of the Siglufjordur fjord at your own pace with a private two-hour stand-up paddle boarding excursion under the midnight sun. Check availability now by choosing a date.
