DifficultyModerate

This tour mixes kayaking with aurora borealis spotting. How cool is that? The tour is available during the wintertime and takes place in the evening.

What to expect?

A Northern Lights Adventure you will never forget. This 1 to 2 hour guided kayaking adventure takes us through the calm water canals in the south Iceland village of Stokkseyri. With only our headlamps shining over the water, our guide will lead the way through the canals, to our destination.

Then we will turn off our headlamps and look up into the sky where the aurora borealis dances overhead, mesmerizing us with their splendour. Afterwards, we return to our base silently paddling through the stillness of the night, accompanied by the cry of sea gulls and the sound of the pounding surf a short distance away.

A romantic, uplifting and enchanting experience that you will not soon forget.Winter hours: October through March, (as long as the lake is not frozen)
