Kayaking on a glacier lagoon is a great opportunity you should seize while in Iceland. The lagoon was formed because the retreat off Heinabergsjökull, on of Vatnajökull outlet glaciers, and has proofed to be a great location for kayaking amongst the icebergs. The majestic nature welcomes paddlers into its serenity and sometimes you feel you have become a part of the scenery.  From the lagoon, you have an excellent view over Vatnajökull and on the tour we do set foot on the glacier as well - of course safely equipped with the appropriate glacier gear.
