Fjord Serenity - Sea Kayaking in Hvalfjörður

Fjord Serenity - Sea Kayaking in Hvalfjörður

A sea kayaking trip where you paddle on the serene and beautiful Hvalfjörður fjord. Sea Kayaking tours are very weather dependent, therefore by using more than one fantastic location, we can minimize cancellations due to wind. If conditions are not favourable in Hvalfjörður, we paddle on Lake Þingvallavatn instead. Hvalfjörður fjord is a deep fjord framed by mountains that stretch from the sea up to more than 1,000 metres. Lake Þingvallavatn is Iceland's largest natural lake, partially located within Iceland's oldest national park. We paddle along the coast and enjoy the magnificent views before we take to shore and relax in the quiet Icelandic countryside. Available from 15 May to 15 September.
