All about the trip
The sunsets in Iceland can be exceptionally beautiful, but nothing compares to the midnight sunset at the Grótta Lighthouse, with an amazing panorama view over Faxaflói bay. On a clear sky evening the view reaches all the way from Snæfellsnes peninsula to the mountain range of Akrafjall, Skarðsheiði and Mt. Esja. Being able to explore this area on a stand up paddleboard, makes this an unforgettable experience that you’ll never forget.
Gótta Lighthouse is located at the very edge of Reykjavik Peninsula, only a 10 minute drive from the city center, which makes it the perfect tour to add to your plans in Reykjavik. The parking lot near the lighthouse can get quite crowded on those fine summer nights, with both locals and travelers enjoying the sunset or strolling along the coast. A small hot water jacuzzi built from rocks is located by the ocean and we always try to dip in after paddling!
The entry out to the ocean is a sandy beach which makes it extremely easy for beginners to join this tour.
