Kayaking Sólheimajökulll Glacier Lagoon

Iceland is the land of fire and ice, so exploring the country's glaciers is a popular pastime for locals and visitors alike. Set just north of the town of Vik on the country's famed South Coast is the Sólheimajökull Glacier, which offers a unique experience. Although hiking across a glacier is a bit more common, you can discover Sólheimajökull from a different perspective with a kayaking tour.

After getting equipped with a dry suit and learning the basics of kayaking from your guides, you'll begin paddling into the glacier's idyllic lagoon. Bask in the beautiful nature around you as you glide around this famous outlet glacier, observe the unique landscape, and pass massive icebergs anchored in the lagoon.

This excursion is ideal for first-time visitors, as no prior kayaking experience is necessary. Discover more unique adventures on the South Coast and active excursions in Iceland.
