Guided Kayaking Trips
Paddling in Ísafjarðardjúp offers excellent kayaking experience and adventure.
The serene beauty of the fjord system is well known by locals but unfamiliar to the outside world. On the other side of the bay is the coastline of Snæfjallaströnd it really gives you the feeling that you are close to the Arctic Circle with its snow-covered hills and the fifth-largest glacier in Iceland just around the corner.
Vigur is the second-largest island of the Ísafjarðardjúp. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, the island is around 2 kilometers (6,600 ft) in length and 400 meters (1,300 ft) in width. The island is most noted for its thriving seabird colonies—particularly Atlantic puffins—traditional eiderdown production and historical buildings.
Walking around the Folafótur peninsula you can see a rich history of settlement. Over 100 people lived here and the ruins of their settlement are still visible today.

Moving from camp to camp we discover the wildlife there, It‘s definitely the wilderness that is the main attraction and the experience being constantly challenging yourself in that environment as a sea kayaker.
