Kayaking on a glacier lagoon is a great opportunity you should seize while in Iceland. The lagoon was formed because the retreat off  Heinabergsjökull, on of Vatnajökull outlet glaciers, and has proofed to be a great location for kayaking amongst the icebergs. The majestic nature welcomes paddlers into its serenity and sometimes you feel you have become a part of the scenery.  From the lagoon, you have an excellent view over Vatnajökull and on the tour we do set foot on the glacier as well - of course safely equipped with the appropriate glacier gear.  
Hreinabergslón glacier lagoon is "out of the beaten path", so you will be far from the big crowds kayaking with us.  Our experienced guides have a great knowledge of the area, it's hidden spots and history - and they will be happy to inform you. 

The Glacier Kayak Adventures suits beginners as well as more experienced kayakers. Our kayaks are SIT-ON-TOP, very stable and suitable for persons who have not gone kayaking before.
