Þingvellir // SUP on the largest glacial lake in Iceland
SUP trip inside the National Park, Þingvellir (UNESCO Heritage Site) on the largest glacial lake in Iceland. Famous for being situated on the tectonic plate boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. No single place epitomizes the history of Iceland and the Icelandic nation better than Þingvellir.
There is propably no place in Iceland as popular as the National Park, Þingvellir (UNESCO Heritage Site) . Famous for it’s oldest parliment in the world, major events in the history of the whole country. Located in a only 30 minutes driving distance from Reykjavík and also being big part of the Golden Circle tour for most of the travelers that visit Iceland. The volcanic scenery, moss, birdlife, mountains and beautiful private cabins around the lake Þingvallarvatn with a surface of 84 km² makes it the perfect and one of our favorite location in Iceland to paddle on.
The location that we have chosen as the entry point at the lake is perfect for beginners and takes us away from the crowd and other visitors inside the park so we should have it all for our selves. Our tours are always built around and for our customers and the way we choose to explore the lake is always made by our guides based on the paddler experience.
