Glacier kayaking is the ultimate way to experience the magnificence of the world famous Vatnajökull National Park. Join us in an unforgettable trip and enjoy unbeatable panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers and their reflection in the mirror like water of the Heinaberg Lagoon. During the tour we step on one of the icebergs and take a short walk, overlooking the lagoon and surrounding area. Heinabergslón is “out of the beaten path”.

This is the perfect tour for those who want to be environmentally friendly while exploring nature.

The Kayaks are SIT-ON-TOP boats, very stable and are suitable for first time kayakers. In the tours we use tandem kayaks (boat for two persons) for their safety, easy handling and stability. We also have single kayaks only in case of single travellers and/or odd number bookings. When booking, you select number of passengers, not boat or boat type. The type of boats will be chosen on spot accordingly by your guide, not upon request.

Available from May 15th – September 30th
