Discover the natural beauty of the Siglufjordur fjord in North Iceland on this private two-hour kayaking tour. Travelers seeking a fun and relaxing experience amid breathtaking surroundings should book this tour today.

Your tour begins when you meet your private kayaking guide at the harbor in Siglufjordur town. Siglufjordur is the northernmost mainland town in Iceland, and today you’ll be paddling across the calm waters of the fjord with the same name.

Siglufjordur is on the north coast of the Trollaskagi Peninsula, a stunning area dotted with alpine glaciers and known for adventurous activities. The town boasts museums and festivals and is an excellent base for exploring North Iceland.

Your guide will give you the necessary equipment for a safe and enjoyable kayaking excursion, ensuring you are comfortable and warm in your boat. Then, it’s time to learn basic kayaking techniques before heading out on the water. 

Experience isn’t necessary, and participants as young as 12 can join this excursion. Because it’s a private tour, the pace and agenda are up to you.

You might want to focus on getting excellent photos of this incredible natural setting. Siglufjordur is a photographer’s dream with its tranquil blue water, towering mountain ranges, and abundant birdlife.

Or, perhaps your group is keen to move quickly and explore as much of the fjord as possible. Maybe your primary interest is learning about the area’s nature and history. Whatever your motivation, your guide will tailor the experience to meet your needs.

As you paddle away from the town, notice the sense of peace you feel on the water. Kayaking is a fantastic way to get close to nature and escape your to-do list and worries. It’s a complete sensory experience, from marveling at the spectacular scenery to feeling the movement of your body as you cruise across the water at your perfect pace. 

See if you can spot seals as you paddle and discover different parts of the fjord. They are often curious about kayaks, so you might be lucky enough for a close-up encounter.

Your guide will also take you to explore shipwrecks and the ruins of the Evanger Factory. The factory opened in 1911 and was Iceland's first large herring processing plant. Sadly, in 1919 an avalanche hit Siglufjordur, washing the factory and other buildings into the ocean.

Feel free to ask your guide questions as you paddle, or simply relax and enjoy spending time with friends or family amid your glorious surroundings.

The guide will lead you back to the start point at the end of your two-hour adventure. From there, you can spend the rest of your day as you wish.

Enjoy the serenity and gorgeous scenery of the Siglufjordur fjord in North Iceland by booking this private two-hour kayaking tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
