The day begins when we meet at the picturesque town of Grundarfjörður, on the tip of Iceland’s famous Snæfellsnes Peninsula. There you will meet your friendly guide, who will provide you with all the equipment and safety tips you need. All kayaks sit on top kayaks from the quality brand ISLANDER. Once you’re ready, you’ll paddle out onto the stunning fjord for a relaxing, 2-hour kayaking adventure.
The day’s highlight is surely the glorious Mount Kirkjufell (Church mountain), a cone-like mountain that coils up into the sky. The way that you experience Kirkjufell depends on the season, as it is only covered in snow in winter. During the summer it is covered in grass, meaning that it rises like an emerald turret above the icy-blue fjord.
Fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones series will recognize Kirkjufell as a crucial filming location on the show. It appeared as ‘The Arrowhead’ Mountain situated North of the Wall. Nearby, the Kirkjufellsfoss Waterfall enhances the scene’s beauty. Discover why Kirkjufell is the most photographed mountain in the whole of Iceland.
Look for the occasional playful seal and seabirds swooping overhead. The quiet beauty of the fjord makes for a wonderful 2-hour tour that everyone will enjoy. Your friendly kayaking guide will keep you safe and give you fascinating insights into the area. The guide will also help you find the best angle for your photo of Kirkjufell!
