Sea Kayak Iceland Symposium

 11th – 14th OF MAY 2023
Booking is available down below ⬇⬇

We would like to invite you to the Sea Kayak Iceland Symposium 2023!

As sea kayakers, we have an amazing opportunity to learn from the sea and the different environments we find ourselves paddling in. Our goal is to help you learn from the things you will see and experience in the different environments and conditions we’ll have available over the weekend. In the end, we hope to guide you on your journey to become a self supported learner and Sea Kayaker!

For three days we offer unique experiences and learning opportunities with great coaches in one of the most beautiful locations in Iceland.

Connect with local and international paddlers by sharing your experience and adventures.

Arnarstapi is well known for its fantastic coastline, an abundance of sea arches and its proximity to the Snæfellsjökull glacier.

Quality on-water classes will be offered that will help you develop and improve your sea kayaking skills. Whether you are just a beginner, advanced, or somewhere in between, we have workshops that will help you learn and grow as a paddler.

As we play on the water during the day, the evenings will be aimed at socializing, lectures and fun!

More coming soon…
