South Coast and Glacier Kayak

Certified Operator     Tour Operator: Icelandic Mountain Guides / Arcanum     11 hours     Travel method: Mini Bus / Car     Region: Capital Region

Visit the most iconic South Coast sights of Iceland and go kayaking on a glacier lagoon. 

Your first stop of the day is Sólheiamjökull glacier. The spectacular Sólheimajökull is one of the most popular glaciers in Iceland to visit, but here you get to go away from the crowds and view the glacier features from a perspective that few others are able to enjoy. Paddling among the always-changing icebergs of this newly formed glacier lagoon gives you a first-hand experience of the massive glacial retreat in recent years. Our Sit-on-Top kayaks are very stable, they require no prior experience and before boarding, your certified kayaking guides will teach you the basic technique.

After your kayaking tour, you continue along the South Coast to the stunning 60 meters high waterfall Skógafoss. If you are up for it, you can climb all of the 527 steps to the top of the waterfall and view it from above, as well as an awe-inspiring panorama of southern Iceland's coastline.

The final stop of the day is the equally impressive waterfall Seljalandsfoss. It is one of the best-known landmarks of Iceland, 65 meters tall, and possible to walk behind in the summer. It is a great experience to see the waterfall from behind, especially on a sunny day when you can catch a rainbow reflection in the water, but bring a raincoat as you can get wet from the drizzle.
