This expedition really is a journey into the wilds of Iceland. The Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, Jökulfirðir glacial fjords and Ísafjarðardjúp bay really are the perfect setting for a remote kayak adventure. We discover secluded spots which are inaccessible by any other means and escape to places where others simply do not go. Moving from camp to camp we discover the wildlife which flocks to these regions during the summer time. Sea birds come from far and wide to breed along these shores. Marine mammals such as whales, dolphins and seals are a common sight and the Arctic Fox is an ever-present beauty.
We paddle under towering cliffs, negotiating the waves and rocks which demonstrate nature’s raw power. We will take time to explore rocky coves and inlets and try our hand at surfing small waves should we encounter any. The camp to camp aspect of this trip along with the exposure to the open ocean and long open water crossings make to journey more suited to kayakers with substantial experience under their belt. If your experience is limited we suggest exploring other trips such as Wild Camp Discovery or Glacier Fjords Kayaking.
