Glacier Lagoon

Glacier Lagoon Private Tour

Glacier Lagoon

For those who would like to go farther and see more, it is possible to stretch the distance and take one of our longest day tours to Jökulsárlón (Jokulsarlon) Glacier Lagoon.  At Jökulsárlon glacier lagoon you will see amazing icebergs that have calved off Vatnajökull glacier floating in the lagoon. The main lagoon measures about 7 square miles (20km2). Up until 1932 was covered in thick glacial ice, then the glacier started to retreat, and nowadays more than 330 feet (100m) of ice breaks away each year to reshape the lagoon and fill it with huge spectacular icebergs.

Along the way we also stop by Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Skogafoss Waterfall, Reynisfjara Black beach as well as Eldhraun lava field. This lava field was created in one of the biggest eruptions in recorded history. The eruption from 1783 to 1784 might even have been one of the causes of the French revolution due to the catastrophic impact it had on climate in not only Iceland but also Europe. Eerie formations of lava tubes are found here, in the warmer months they look like a field of moss bubbles!

Tour length is from 13 hrs.

Optional Add-ons

In the summer months, it is possible to take an optional Zodiac or Amphibian boat ride at the lagoon to get closer to the icebergs. You may even spot a few seals dotting in and out of the water. 

In the winter months, there is the option to further extend the tour and explore magnificent naturally formed ice cave in Vatnajökull (Vatnajokull) Glacier, the largest glacier in Iceland and second largest in Europe. The ice caves are formed from the interaction of water, ice and temperature change during the warmer months, and the passage hardens in the winter. They are a natural phenomenon and their appearance and character changes from time to time.
