Calm Water Kayaking - Isafjordur in the West Fjords
This trip is perfect for those looking for an exciting introduction to the great sport of sea kayaking. And it's available all year.
Isafjordur has earned its reputation as the sea kayaking center of Iceland. The reason is the endless possibilities for kayaking in the fjords and bays that are close by but still so remote.
Paddling under the magnificent mountains towering over the town around Isafjordur, the traveler experiences the closeness of nature and the beauty of the landscape from an exciting angle and in a safe environment.
We begin with a short lesson in paddling and put the boats out behind the Maritime Museum and paddle a circle inside the fjord while keeping a sharp lookout for various bird species and seals.
