Kayaking in Iceland
Land of fire, ice and waterfalls.
- Icelandic River Guides (from 10 years ago!)
- Bakkaflot Rafting and Mark Hirst is a helpful source of local knowledge
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.
Public transport will be hopeless, is easy to hire 4x4.
