Glacier Lagoon

The Glacier lagoon in Iceland is close to highway number one, about 370 km (230 miles) east from Reykjavík and it is told to be one of the greatest wonders of nature in Iceland. This lagoon is the biggest Glacial lagoon in Iceland, it is a recent one, the result of a warming climate. The surface is at sea level and sea water flows into the lagoon at high tide.

We offer two types of tours: on the Amphibian boat you sail among the huge icebergs in the picturesque scenery of Jökulsárlón.  On the boat you get to taste the 1000 year old ice and if you are lucky you might even see some seals.
The excursion takes 30–40 minutes and includes an English speaking guide who explains to you the geology and facts of the lagoon. Other languages may be offered upon request.
Prices in 2018 are: Adult: ISK 5700 Children ISK 2000

On the Zodiac Tour we are able to cover large areas of the lagoon and get closer to the icebergs than on the amphibian. When possible, the Zodiac goes almost all the way up to the glacier (as close as safe). The Zodiac tour is about 1 hour long
Prices in 2018 are; Adults: ISK 9800 Children: ISK 5000

Passengers are provided with flotation suits and a life jacket. Passengers must be 10 years old or older or at least 130 cm tall to go on the Zodiac tour.
