A wonderful experience for beginners and veterans alike, this tour takes you paddling just beneath the magnificent mountains that tower over our small town. This trip is a perfect half-day activity. Get ready to experience the majesty of our fjord from a unique angle!
The journey begins at our base at Mávagarður C (grey building), where you meet your guide and gear up. We then walk down to the shore behind the old houses in Neðstikaupstaður, where we have a short safety briefing and paddling lesson.
And then we’re off! We explore the fjord keeping a good lookout for various bird species and seals. Our guides will be sure to tell stories of history, folklore, and life in a small town close to the arctic circle. During the summer, we can expect to see many sea birds including Oystercatchers, Arctic Terns, Eider ducks and of course the curious colony of seals who call Ísafjörður their home.
We spend approximately 2 hours on the water before heading back to our base at Mávagarður C.
Our base at Mávagarður C (grey building) close to the Eastern Harbour, Ísafjörður, Iceland.
