Frequently asked questions

Do you need to be experienced to go on a kayaking tour in Iceland?

Most kayaking tours in Iceland are open to people of different abilities. A short introduction to technique and safety will be given at the start of every tour. Kayaking experience and good physical condition are recommended for tours that stretch over several days.

What time of year can you kayak in Iceland?

Kayaking tours in Iceland are in operation between May and September.

Is there an age restriction on kayaking tours in Iceland?

Yes, but it differs between tour providers and the difficulty of the kayaking tour. Usually, the age limit is between 14 and 18 years old.

How many people fit in a kayak?

Most companies will offer a choice between single-person kayaks and tandem kayaks that fit two people.

What should I wear on a kayaking tour in Iceland?

You should wear warm layers, and it is always a good idea to bring an extra pair of socks. Overalls will be provided as well as gloves—and in some cases, even shoes.

Do I need to bring any equipment for my kayaking tour in Iceland?

No, all equipment will be provided, just make sure to bring warm clothes.

Can I bring my camera/phone with me?

Yes, you can. However, you are responsible for all equipment you choose to bring with you.

What happens if I fall in the water?

The kayaks are generally very stable and generally do not capsize. You will be provided with overalls and a life jacket to stay afloat while your clothing will mostly stay dry.

Do I need to be able to swim to go on a kayaking tour in Iceland?

You do not have to be able to swim, but it is better if you can. In the unlikely event that you capsize, your lifejacket will keep you afloat, and your guide is trained and will know exactly what to do. People who can swim generally feel more confident in the water.

How long will a kayaking tour in Iceland last?

Kayaking tours can be as short as two hours and as long as ten hours. It is up to you how long you are willing to stay on the water. If you are new to kayaking, we recommend shorter tours.
