On this kayaking day trip, you'll get to explore a truly special region of Iceland and admire the serene beauty of the fjord system. Get ready to travel the whole length of Seyðisfjörður fjord, around the Folafótur (e. Horse Leg) peninsula and into Hestfjörður fjord. Keep your eyes peeled for whales, seals, and dolphins along the way!
The journey begins at our base in Mávagarður C (grey building), where you meet your guide and gear up. We then drive for around 45 minutes from Ísafjörður to reach the head of Seyðisfjörður fjord, where we have a short safety briefing and paddle lesson.
We begin kayaking under the imposing mountain Hestur, with its steep cliffs and unique shape. After a couple of hours, we land at the very point of Folafótur peninsula, where we land on a beautiful sandy beach to see the unusual rock formations caused by erosion while enjoying our lunch. We will keep a good lookout for seals, whales and white-tailed eagles as this is a place where they are often seen.
Paddling along the coast of Hestfjörður is our next mission and we land close to the main road, where our car will be waiting to take us back to Ísafjörður.
