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 reflected upon the mirror-like water of the Heinaberg Lagoon. From the lagoon, you have an excellent view over Vatnajokull and on the tour we do set foot on the glacier as well – of course safely equipped with the appropriate glacier gear. Heinabergslón is “out of the beaten path”, so no other traffic on the water.
