Full description
This 2-hour sea kayak tour is the perfect opportunity to discover Iceland's nature and wildlife at its best. Escape the crowds on this excursion and travel along the coastline to some of the most remote islands of Breiðafjörður Bay. Enjoy scenic landscapes from sea level and see the surrounding glaciers and volcanoes of the peninsula.

The tour will start at the kayak base located in the center of the charming village of Stykkishólmur. After a short paddle, the tour arrives at the first landmark, Landey, the world famous eiderdown harvesting location. Later, the tour visits shipwrecks, including the eerie wreckage of the Thorgeir.

Occasionally kayakers spot the king of Iceland’s birdlife, the white-tailed eagle, flying far above or nesting on the islands. The white tail eagle is a rare and unforgettable sight. Then, after a short paddle break, the tour threads between local islands before returning to shore.
