Kayaking Adventure on Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to experience the “Crown Jewel of Iceland”, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, all from your very own kayak! Truly, this is an amazing and unique chance to explore one of Iceland’s most beloved natural sites, all the while partaking in a gentle, but incredibly fun boating trip. What’s not to love?For those who are concerned about kayaking (particularly those who have never tried the sport before), there is absolutely no reason to fear. This excursion is fully guided by a knowledgeable, qualified and English-speaking tour leader who will be quick not only to provide you with all necessary equipment, including a dry suit, kayak and paddles, but will also teach you about the area’s incredible culture and history.As an added security, this tour only uses SIT ON TOP kayaks, a particular type that is far wider than usual, thus more stable. You will have the option to ride in a kayak with a buddy, or go solo. Kayaking atop the lagoon’s gentle, still surface, you will pass a wealth of fantastical sights; with Arctic terns and skuas flying overhead, and seals bobbing gently in the water around you, you’ll have trouble decided where to look—the picturesque scenery? The vibrant wildlife? The astonishing floating icebergs? Nowhere else in Iceland can match Jökulsárlón for its eclectic beauty. After your time kayaking on the lagoon is over, you are recommended to check out the nearby Diamond Beach, found only a few minutes walk away from the lagoon. Here, icebergs that float out from Jökulsárlón often washed ashore onto the beach’s black volcanic sands, making for a fantastic, stark contrast in colour. So, time to paddle up-creek with this fantastic kayaking tour at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, one of the most beautiful natural sites to be found in Iceland.

Puffin Watching Tour on Breidafjordur Bay

Join us on out on Breiðarfjörður bay for a day of puffin spotting, on one of our well-equipped sightseeing boats. Our boats are typical Icelandic fishing boats, which are especially useful for nature and bird watching because we can get closer to the puffins and other birds nestled in the many small isles than on other bigger boats. Our ambition is offering excellent service for all of our guests.The Puffin tour starts in Stykkishólmur. From there we sail to the island that is the main settlement for puffins on the bay: Elliðaey. The island is full of puffins, and during high puffin season around the middle of July, there are about 2000 couples nesting in the island. This is not at all unusual, as the islands in Breiðafjörður are full of birdlife during summertime; among other birds to see are kittiwake, cormorants, arctic terns, white-tailed eagles and many more.Elliðaey is a beautiful island which was inhabited until the year 1950. You can still see the buildings in the islands: a house, barn and a lighthouse. The family that lived on the island from 1922 to 1950 were lighthouse keepers. Even though they do not live there anymore, the family still takes care of the island and the properties on it. There is a lot of history connected to the islands on Breiðafjörður bay that you will discover on our tour.This trip is ideal for taking pictures of puffin as we can go very close to the cliffs of the islands, without disturbing the birds. We will then sail around the island and take a look at beautiful basalt columns. After we have explored the island, we head to a place where seals are often spotted. After that, we go back to Stykkishólmur. As we sail, there is always a chance to see something remarkable, like eagles and dolphins, which also inhabit the bay. Don't miss the opportunity for a visit to the Breiðafjörður bay.

Puffin Watching Tour on Breidafjordur Bay

Join us on out on Breiðarfjörður bay for a day of puffin spotting, on one of our well-equipped sightseeing boats. Our boats are typical Icelandic fishing boats, which are especially useful for nature and bird watching because we can get closer to the puffins and other birds nestled in the many small isles than on other bigger boats. Our ambition is offering excellent service for all of our guests.The Puffin tour starts in Stykkishólmur. From there we sail to the island that is the main settlement for puffins on the bay: Elliðaey. The island is full of puffins, and during high puffin season around the middle of July, there are about 2000 couples nesting in the island. This is not at all unusual, as the islands in Breiðafjörður are full of birdlife during summertime; among other birds to see are kittiwake, cormorants, arctic terns, white-tailed eagles and many more.Elliðaey is a beautiful island which was inhabited until the year 1950. You can still see the buildings in the islands: a house, barn and a lighthouse. The family that lived on the island from 1922 to 1950 were lighthouse keepers. Even though they do not live there anymore, the family still takes care of the island and the properties on it. There is a lot of history connected to the islands on Breiðafjörður bay that you will discover on our tour.This trip is ideal for taking pictures of puffin as we can go very close to the cliffs of the islands, without disturbing the birds. We will then sail around the island and take a look at beautiful basalt columns. After we have explored the island, we head to a place where seals are often spotted. After that, we go back to Stykkishólmur. As we sail, there is always a chance to see something remarkable, like eagles and dolphins, which also inhabit the bay. Don't miss the opportunity for a visit to the Breiðafjörður bay.

Northern Lights by Boat with Backup Activities for Bad Weather

Don’t be left with nothing to do on a winter night in Iceland, by booking this Northern Lights cruise that guarantees a back-up tour if the weather is unfavourable. This is the perfect way to make sure you won’t be disappointed by a planned night in Reykjavík.All going to plan, you will take the tour detailed below, but in case of bad weather, you will instead go for a guided tour to the Whale of Iceland Exhibition by the harbour. This fantastic museum has life-sized models of all 23 whale and dolphin species seen around Iceland. You’ll get a complimentary drink, and, of course, a ticket to try northern lights hunting another night.If the sky is clear and the forecast good, however, you’ll board a ship at the same harbour, and set off onto Faxaflói Bay. As the sky darkens, you’ll keep your eyes peeled for any sign of the incredible, ethereal aurora borealis.When they start to descend, you’ll be in awe of their surreal beauty. Greens, purples, and a range of other colours swirl and dance amongst a canopy of stars like something from another world. The sea is one of the best places to watch nature’s greatest show, as the only light pollution will be from the distant city lights of Reykjavík.While you wait for the lights (or after them), you are welcome to stay warm indoors on the boat; there is a large, heated cabin with comfortable seats, complete with restrooms and a cafe.After two hours, hopefully, complete with a fantastic show, you’ll be returned to Reykjavík’s harbour.
