What you'll do

Kirkjufell looks beautiful at any time of the day. But to see this majestic mountain as you glide softly across the still seas while the midnight sun sets is nothing short of magical. This is a unique opportunity to experience nature at its most spectacular and we promise it will be a truly unforgettable experience! First of all, we will get you geared up and teach you the basics if you haven't paddled before as well as go through a safety briefing. As with our day tours, there are stops at various scenic locations where you can take photos, meet some curious seals, float on the sea or just enjoy the beautiful view during the stunning midnight sunset.

Rut

My husband, Gardar and I have been kayaking for a long time and are both kayak instructors. Winter 2017 we got the idea of our kayaking tour company, Vestur Adventures, where we could combine our work and passion! We moved to Grundarfjordur a small fishing village in the west of Iceland where Gardar grew up. Grundarfjordur has become very popular among tourists due to its beautiful scenery and the famous Mt. Kirkjufell! We love working together and our main goal is to give all our customers a good time and personal service. We look forward to seeing you!!

Where you'll be

We will paddle along the coastline of Grundarfjordur and will pass a skerry called "Seal skerry" which is between Grundarfjordur and Mt. Kirkjufell and a great photo angle of the mountain, nature and the town. Seals and a great variety of birds are very likely to be on our way! We will then continue paddling towards the mountain and enjoy the breathtaking views of this gracious mountain and its surroundings.
