BOOKING

In our tours we use tandem SIT kayaks (boat for two persons) for their safety, easy handling and stability. We also have single SIT kayaks only in case of single travellers and/or odd number bookings. When booking, you select number of passengers, not boat or boat type. The type of boats will be chosen on spot accordingly by the guide, not upon request.

Participants must be at the meeting point 15 minutes prior to the departure time!

MEETING POINT

Meet us in our small box van at Jökulsárlón. We have all our equipment in our van and there we suit up before heading out on to the water. Our van is located at the Glacier lagoon main parking lot and is thoroughly marked Iceguide.
