Kayaking in Hornafjördur is a great way for your getaway to a peaceful and nursing outdoor activity. A vivid bird life, glacier view and black sand beaches create an unforgettable experience in the back yard of the beautiful fishing village of Höfn. Höfn Local Guide offers small group kayak tours in Hornafjörður, embarking from the old pier in Ósland. Your leisurely paddle among the small islands of Hornafjörður might get the harbor seals of the fjord curious enough to pay you a visit and you will take land on the amazing Suðurfjörur sandbank. In the black sand you will get an opportunity to taste some local snacks before paddling back to Ósland. 

No experience in paddling is required for Höfn Local Guide's kayak tours, they are suitable for both beginners and experienced paddlers. Paddlers need to be in a reasonably good physical shape for this tour.

The tours are highly weather depended, and the wind velocity can prevent a paddle. To start a tour on a fixed time is not an option as the sea tide sets the time for embarkment, see time scheduled here. (COMING UP!)

If a tour needs to be cancelled due to weather conditions, guests will be informed the day before, or on the morning of the paddle. Full refund will be given if that happens, another on-land tour offered or an option to reschedule kayak tour for another day.
