ICELAND IS A LAND OF VARIABLE WEATHER AND GUESTS SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR THAT. DRESS ACCORDINGLY AND TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT THE WEATHER CAN CHANGE QUICKLY.
Less is more when it comes to packing for kayaking trips. There is limited space in the kayaks and we also need to split the food and tents among the group.
For the “Calm Water Kayaking” trip it is enough to come more or less as you stand. However, jeans and cotton is still not good. Some sort of hiking/fleece pants and fleece/wool sweater is fine.
For “Hot Pots and Kayaking with Seals” and “Two Fjords Discovery” trips, bring spare clothes and warm clothes to wear while paddling and a cap. We might supply neoprene pants for you to wear if there is wind or if you have little or no experience. To these two trips delicious lunch that is fit for vegetarians and hot tea is included. All kayaking gear is supplied.

Sample list for day tours like Hornstrandir Panorama, Green Cliffs of Hornstrandir and Valley to Valley hiking trips:
We supply all paddling gear, clothing and shoes if needed. Feel free to bring your own if you have it available. With your personal gear, you are guaranteed that it fits perfectly and is comfortable. We recommend good dry pants with ankle rubber cuffs or 3mm neoprene bibs. Top, preferable with hood and arm rubber cuffs. Full dry suit is for sure best if you have one. Footwear should either be neoprene shoes high up on the ankle with thick soles, or neoprene boots. Neoprene gloves, mittens or poagies to keep the hands warm.
