Kontiki

We run sea kayak trips from the small fishing village of Stykkishólmur on the beautiful Snæfellsnes peninsula in Western Iceland. We are just a 2-hour drive from Reykjavik city. Our main focus is day trips for small groups along the coastline of Breidafjordur bay to get close to nature and wildlife.

This two-hour sea kayak tour is the perfect opportunity to experience Iceland's nature and wildlife at its very best. Truly a must-do for the adventurous traveller and nature lover eager to explore the west of Iceland. On this personalised tour we teach clients the basic skills of kayaking before heading off in search of puffins and seals and to explore an abandoned shipwreck and learn about the fascinating history and geology of the wild and rugged Snæfellsnes peninsula.

Helgafell Holy Mountain

Holy Mountain, 73 m with a breathtaking panoramic view across Breiðafjordur Bay. A viewing dial is at the top.

Folklore advises anyone climbing the mountain for the first time to walk straight up without looking back or speaking and three wishes will be granted. The wishes have to be of good intent and the wisher tells no one and faces east when making them.

A small remnant of a wall on the mountain top is dated 1184 and was a part of a nearby monastery built at this time.
