GLACIER KAYAK ADVENTURE

Heinabergslón

THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE

Availability: May – September

Glacier kayaking is the ultimate way to experience the magnificence of the world famous Vatnajökull National Park. Join us in an unforgettable trip and enjoy unbeatable panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers and their reflection in the mirror like water of the Heinaberg Lagoon. On the tour we step on one of the icebergs and take a short walk, overlooking the lagoon and surrounding area. Heinabergslón is “out of the beaten path”. This is the tour for those who want to be environmentally friendly while exploring nature.
