Kayaking

Mynd 5.jpg

The old road between the towns of Ísafjörður and Bolungarvík, is well known among locals as the most dangerous road in Iceland. The sheer cliffs that loom above caused many avalanches and rockfalls in the past that caused serious accidents and fatalities. Fortunately there is now a tunnel between the two towns that opened in 2010 but the road is still there and on good days it's great to bike the road or kayak along the shore, enjoying the peaceful rythm of the sea while watching the birds in the sky and the seals swimming curiously near the kayaks.

On this trip we paddle with the wind the whole time and either start in Bolungarvík og Ísafjörður depending on the wind direction.
