The tour departs from the picturesque village of Stokkseyri, a beautiful seashore village with powerful waves and wild birdlife. Stokkseyri lies on the South Coast of Iceland, at the edge of the vast Thjorsarhraun Lava Field, which is named after the river that you will be kayaking down. We will then provide you with all the equipment that you need, along with a few safety instructions. After that, you will be free to explore the incredible glacial waterways that are framed by truly spectacular scenery.
This tour is completely safe, making it ideal for families and those with little to no kayaking experience. It also provides visitors with total freedom, as it is unguided, allowing you to stop wherever you want and enjoy the spectacular scenery in your own way. There is nothing quite like kayaking on a calm glacial river: the water is calm, majestic birds swoop above and the feeling of gliding across the deep blue waters, is both peaceful and relaxing. If that is something that appeals to you, then don’t miss the chance to enjoy this unforgettable experience.
