Hot Pools Kayaking

What could be better than incorporating great kayaking, visiting beautiful islands and dipping into geothermal water after a long day of paddling? The Bay of Isafjardardjup is the perfect area for kayakers of all levels who want to spend time in the wilderness but still be close to civilization. We'll visit great places and camp at beautiful spots where we sometimes have the option to take advantage of geothermal pools in the area. 

 

 

Trip itinerary

Day 1
Departure from Isafjordur in the afternoon with a car to the head of Seydisfjordur, where we start paddling. Our destination for the night is Folafotur, a small peninsula between Seydisfjordur and Hestfjordur fjords.

 

Day 2
Kayak to Vigur Island. The birdlife on the island is amazing and the beautiful and colorful houses are very picturesque. The small coffee house is a great place to stop by and relax. After about two hours on the island, we get going again, paddling to Aedey Island for the night.

 

Day 3
Today we'll paddle to Kaldalon where Drangajokull Glacier meets the low plains of the wide valley. We'll pass the lagoon and head a bit further before camping for the night. Option for a short car ride to a geothermal pool to relax sore muscles for few hours.

 

Day 4
Now we slide a bit further along the coast before heading across the Bay. We'll stop en route to Borgarey Island for some lunch and check out the puffins. Then we continue going all the way across to Reykjanes Peninsula which is a great area to spot seals. There is a lot of geothermal heat in the area and a big geothermal pool. We will relax a bit in the pool and get going again for a short paddle to our designated camp spot in a cove nearby.

 

Day 5

This is our last day of the trip. We'll start paddling out of the bay and stop where we want along the coast. Depending on the spirit within the group and weather, we choose how far we want to paddle before meeting the car.

Welcome to the website for Borea Adventures, Iceland, your number one stop for Arctic adventures in high latitudes. We provide great adventures and expeditions in Iceland, Greenland, East Greenland, Jan Mayen and Svalbard (Spitzbergen), mainly using our spacious yacht, the Aurora. Our philosophy is to make our trips as silent as possible where we minimize the use of motorized power and encourage physical activities, whether sea kayaking, climbing, sailing, walking and hiking, wildlife, ski touring and backcountry skiing for beginners, experts and people of all ages. The North Atlantic is our playground and we offer scheduled trips for individuals and groups as well as customized itineraries and charter for groups. We travel in harmony with the wildlife of the area: Arctic Foxes, Birds, Seals, Whales and Polar Bears. Aurora is a sturdy expedition yacht and was raced four times around the globe as part of the Clipper Round the World yacht race under the ownership of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston. She gives us a great opportunity to provide Arctic adventures in areas that are hard to reach otherwise. We call her our floating basecamp. Our name is derived from Greek mythology where Boreas was the god of the north wind. Aurora on the other hand was the Roman rosy-fingered goddess of dawn. Aurora Borealis is a name for the Northern lights which are common in our area. As we humans have proven through the decades, names can be hard to remember. Especially if a bit of alcohol gets passed around the galley too many times! You might spell our name Boreal Adventures, Borial Adventures, Borea Adventrues and Borealis Adventures. Thank you for visiting Borea Adventures.
