Sea kayaking in Iceland  is one of the most unique ways to witness the natural wonders the country has to offer. Your cruise ship offers a great vantage point from above the water, but in a kayak, you are right on the glassy surface of the icy northern ocean. You will experience Iceland just as the marine life does, admiring the towering fjords & ominous icebergs in their full scale. It's also one of the best ways to get up close to the incredible wildlife that has adapted to life on top of the world, including walruses, polar bears, and perhaps even the elusive narwhal! Kayaking isn't the only thing you will experience on these tours, and it will be balanced with an exciting mix of other activities, like trekking across glaciers, getting to know the fascinating Viking culture, and spending time with some locals.
