Tour description glacier kayaking in Iceland:

Meet up with your fellow tour-goers and guide 38 km west of Höfn at a place called Flatey. There, you will receive all necessary kayak equipment, such as drysuits, safety vests, gloves etc, before starting your tour.

Heinabergslón is a secluded area, so the only ones there will be your group of maximum 16 persons and your professional guide. Get up close and personal with the icebergs as you paddle in peace, beneath the majestic glaciers and summit of the mighty Vatnajökull National park.

The tour is led by professional guides with great kayaking skills and vast knowledge of the area and its history. It suits kayakers with no paddling experience and experienced paddlers alike. The kayaks are very stable and are suitable for people who are new to kayaking.

Children between the ages 12-16 must always ride with an adult, otherwise you are welcome to choose between a single or a two-person kayak. Though the tour is suitable for absolute beginners, a reasonable level of fitness is required.

The guides do expect you to come prepared, so we ask you to please bring good thermal clothing to wear underneath the drysuit, as well as good hiking shoes. Also recommened are fleece jackets, fleece or soft shell trousers and warm socks. If the sun is out, sunglasses are a must!
