About Kontiki Kayaking
We run sea kayak trips from the small fishing village of Stykkisholmur 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 in expedition sea kayaks. Perfect way to get away from the crowds to paddle with puffins and explore abandoned shipwrecks.

Took a kayaking tour probably on the most beautiful day in Iceland with Kristján, our guide. He’s very knowledgeable about kayaking as he gave us careful instructions before we hit the water, so even if you’re scared at first don’t worry, you’re on safe hands!...More

We could arrange pick up but the cost is going to be much more then renting a car for the day.
