Sóti Summits offers a spectacular four day sea kayak course during Iceland’s birding season!

Springtime in Iceland is when our migratory birds come home to nest and the air is full of birdsong. Along the coastline, our seabirds start nesting and the cliffs teem with life. We offer you to experience this beautiful season in an unforgettable way – sea kayaking in Iceland, learning the tricks of cutting gracefully though the waves. This is truly a unique and unforgettable adventure.

An adventure at sea

The course is designed both for beginners to the kayak sport, as well more experienced kayakers who want to add to their skills.  The course will cover basic paddling techniques, rescues and how best to take care of the kayak and the equipment needed for the sport. Part of the course takes place indoors, however participants will mainly be spending their time at sea. There, they will paddle between points of interest and along fjords, among nesting birds and columnar basalt, during which unique opportunities will open up for immersion in the tranquil natural coastline.

This is an exciting offer for people who want to travel in a new way, work with the natural elements and observe Iceland’s nature and wildlife up close. In the evenings, course participants enjoy quality services and delicious cuisine offered at Sóti Lodge, at the tip of Troll peninsula.

Sea kayaking in Iceland is perfect for friends, hobby groups and workplaces – in essence, any group that wants to nurture a sense of common experience and achievement.
