Kayaking in Iceland

Land of fire, ice and waterfalls.

When to go

Most of the snow-melt runs will go from May to late June depending on the snow pack. All of the main glacial runs will be low in May/June then once the warm weather hits they will rise. All you need are a few days of a southerly weather system to bring them up. September can be a good month as the autumn storms bring the last of the warm air to push the rivers up for one last blast.

How to get there

Flights into Rekjavik, reasonable from UK with Easyjet.

Transport

Public transport will be hopeless, is easy to hire 4x4.
