This is one of our all-time classic day tours from Reykjavík. It offers sea kayaking on the beautiful Geldinganes in Reykjavík. Explore the incredible wildlife by paddling the neighbor shores of Reykjavik. Experience untouched nature at its best where you encounter wild bird life, occasional seals and everlasting peace and quiet.

Sea Kayaking tours are very weather dependent, therefore by using more than one fantastic location, we can minimize cancellations due to the wind. Our kayaks are very stable and easy to use, all to give you the best experience as possible. The small groups make it possible to never have more than 6 kayakers for every guide.  There is no need for prior kayaking experience due to the certified kayak guides’ excellent instruction.

We use top quality modern sea kayaks and have sizes to suit most. Our kayaks are regularly checked and serviced. We do not use sit on top kayaks.

Our guides will be taking photos of the group during the tour and they will be accessible to group members online free of charge. See photos from previous tours here

We recommend that participants wear warm outdoor clothing, for example, a fleece or wool sweater and pants. You should also bring a change of clothing and swimwear.

No prior kayaking experience is required for the tours as our professional guides will teach the technique on location.

Our kayaking tours are all listed at a level easy or moderate so most people should be able to do the tour. Just keep in mind that the activity is an outdoor nature activity so some physical strength is needed.

All our kayaking tours are operated by experienced and certified professional 4 star BCU sea kayak guides.

We use top of the line plastic sea kayaks.

Our kayaks are very stable and easy to use.

Yes, they can tip over, although they are very stable and it happens rarely. If they tip over the guide has the necessary equipment and ability to quickly tip them over again.

If the kayaks tip over participants don’t have to worry too much, all participants get life jackets and neoprene suits so they will stay warm even if they fall in.

Taking a waterproof camera is a great idea when going on a kayak tour. However, it is not recommended to take too much on this day tour as there is really no need for it.

Although you don’t need to “swim” while sea kayaking, we recommend that you can. People that can’t swim tend to panic when they are in the water. You have to be comfortable with floating in water.
