Hot Pools Kayaking
What´s better than incorporating great kayaking, visiting beautiful islands and dipping into geothermal water after a long day of paddling? The Bay of Isafjardardjup is a perfect area for kayakers of all levels that want to spend time in the wilderness but still close to civilization. We´ll visit great places and camp on beautiful spots where we sometimes have options to take advantage of geothermal pools in the area.
Departure from Isafjordur in the afternoon with a car to the head of Seydisfjordur wher we start paddling. Our destination for the night is Folafotur, a small peninsula between Seydisfjordur and Hestfjordur fjords.
Kayak to Vigur Island. The birdlife in the island is amazing and the beautiful and colourful houses are very picturesque and a small coffee house is a great place to stop by and relax. After about two hours on the island, we get going again and paddle to Aedey Island for the night.
Today we´ll paddle to Kaldalon where Drangajokull Glacier meets the low plains of the wide valley. We´ll pass the lagoon and head bit further before camping for the night. Option for a short car ride to a geothermal pool to relax sore muscles for few hours.
Now we slide a bit further along the coast before heading across the Bay. We´ll stop en route in Borgarey Island for some lunch and check out the puffins. Then we keep on 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.
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.
