Sea Kayaking – USD $1,300 per person
Exploration by sea kayak is an ideal way to surround yourself in the sights and sounds of Iceland - padding along pristine and quiet fjords and to observe wildlife in an unobtrusive manner. Paddlers will have the option to kayak as often as possible during the voyage (weather conditions permitting), or to join fellow expeditioners on shore landings. Some kayak excursions may be long in duration and on choppy water, so a reasonable level of kayaking experience is required to participate in this activity.
Photography - (free)
All voyages offer fantastic opportunities for photography and videography and on selected voyages an expert photographer will offer informal lectures filled with tips to improve your skills. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced amateur, you’ll certainly pick up some useful hints in the presentations.
