June - September
The Stand Up Paddleboard: Into the Hvalförður Fjord Private Tour (SUP)
This is self-drive tour. Please meet your guide in Hvalfjarðarvegur, Hvalfjörður 301, IS
Just outside of Reykjavík lies the beautiful Hvalfjörður Fjord. Before the opening of the Hvalfjörður underwater tunnel in the ’90s, the fjord served as an essential connection between West and South Iceland. After the tunnel’s entrance, the fjord was overlooked mainly by local and foreign travelers alike. Favoring the shorter tunnel route, Hvalfjörður was in many ways forgotten despite its natural beauty. Home to natural attractions such as the Glymur waterfall, Hvalfjörður is slowly but surely making its way back on the map.
On this tour, you will uniquely experience Hvalfjörður! Once there, you will gear up in drysuits or wetsuits before hitting the water. This experience is suitable for both beginners and those with more experience. Your guide will tailor the tour to your experience level; if you are a beginner, he will teach you the ropes.
Once out on the ocean, you can experience some incredible views. Surrounded by mountains, paddleboarding surrounded by such natural beauty is an unforgettable experience.
Please note that SUP tours are highly dependent on weather and sea conditions. This tour can be changed or canceled with short notice for safety reasons. You do not need SUP experience to enjoy this tour, but you must meet some minimum requirements.
Please review the FAQ section for this tour carefully before booking.
