Full description
Your tour will begin at the kayaking base, where you will meet your experienced local guide. After some friendly introductions, your guide will provide you with all of the necessary equipment for a fun and safe time on the water. Your kit will include a dry suit, a life jacket, shoes and gloves, and of course, a thermal undersuit.

You will spend a total of 70 minutes on the water, first heading towards “Seal Skerry”, an area of incredible wildlife which includes various species of birds, and as the name suggests, some resident seals. From this location you will have a fantastic view of Mount Kirkjufell, which stands proud and domineering over the landscape. Keen observers of pop culture will recognize Kirkjufell almost immediately as the “mountain like an arrowhead” from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Leaving “Seal Skerry” behind, you will continue along the shoreline at the mountain’s roots, before making the return journey to the base. After your tour is over, you are invited to warm up on the kayaking base’s deck with a hot beverage, reflecting over the beautiful experience in which you’ve just partaken. When your time at the base is over, you are free to continue exploring this beautiful region at your leisure.
