Sea Kayaking Tour
If you're landing at the International Airport very early and wonder what to do during this initial hours of the day before reaching Reykjavik, then this kayak tour might be just for you, particularly because the waters are very still early in the morning, and late in the evening.
Also, the evening tour fits perfectly in if you have a late departure. Very good for families, since the kayaks are very stable and children aged 5 - 11 share with their parents.
The tour operator is a small family business, offering personal service from their own farm located midway between Keflavik International Airport and Reykjavik. The farm in on the northern shore of the Reykjanes Peninsula.
You meet up on location and the guided tours are done in a group of 2-8 persons for 2 hours, paddling from Þórustaðir (Thorustadir) in the area of Vatnsleysuströnd, to the Gerðistangi Lighthouse where we take a short break, and back.
Different departure timings may be arranged by email. Please note that trips may need to be canceled due to bad weather, in which case you would receive a full refund. Wheelchair users are welcome to this tour as well - just contact us with the details.
Sit-on-top kayaks are very secure and appeal particularly to new paddlers, who don't plan on expeditions.
The recreational sit-on-top kayaks have a few advantages over sit-insides, one of which is comfort. Paddlers with large body types, long legs, or limited flexibility may feel less confined paddling a sit-on-top. Because sit-on-tops have an open deck rather than an enclosed one, there is less risk of becoming trapped in the boat.
