Itinerary

Open for details

This glacier lagoon kayaking tour is suitable for beginners and experienced paddlers.

Meet your group at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon car parking at least 30 minutes before tour departure. We are located in a box van by the lagoon marked as  “IceGuide”.

Your friendly guide will provide you with a drysuit, life vest, shoes, and gloves, then you are ready for your incredible glacier lagoon kayaking tour. You’ll use very stable and secure SIT-ON-TOP boats, these are very suitable for first-time kayakers.

You will spend about 1 hour exploring the glacier lagoon. Your friendly guide will tell you all about the area’s incredible history and culture. As you paddle across the calm, deep waters of the lagoon, you’ll probably see many seals. These adorable creatures call Jökulsárlón home, and they can often be seen playing in the water or sunbathing on the icebergs.

Exploring Jökulsárlón from a kayak is truly out of this world – seeing it on the mirror-like surface of the ice lagoon is incredibly amazing. No visitor to Iceland should miss out on this incredible opportunity.
