Sea kayak rentals
Kayaking in Greenland is an unforgettable experience. As you silently drift among the icebergs on a deep fjord with glassy, smooth waters, you feel like you become one – not only with the kayak, but with the landscape, the country and its history.
Blue Ice has high-quality sea kayaks for rent, including 14 single kayaks and 9 double kayaks. We rent out kayaks to individuals as well as to groups, but only to experienced paddlers. When you sign a rental agreement, there is a clause stating that you take full responsibility for your kayaking trip.
The sea temperature does not rise above 4 to 5 degrees Celsius during the summer. Together with sudden weather changes and steep and inaccessible coastlines, kayaking in Greenland is quite challenging.
You can read more about our kayak models, rates and other equipment below. Book a kayak by sending us an e-mail. We recommend that you book kayaks well in advance, especially if you are planning a longer trip.
If you don’t have any previous experience in a kayak we recommend that you book a seat on our guided kayak trip. You can read more about our guided kayak trip in our daytrip section.
