Our guides will provide you with all necessary equipment, including kayaks, paddles, dry suits, and a comprehensive paddling tutorial.

This one to one-and-a-half-hour kayak journey offers an intimate encounter with Iceland's icy wonders. Post-kayaking, we invite you to unwind with a warm cup of tea or coffee at our base camp, nestled by the Sólheimajökull glacier, reflecting on the day's remarkable experiences.
