Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon

Jökulsárlón-Glacier lagoon is one of Icelands most visited places with good reason. It is a pure natural art and a spectacular sight.

Jökulsárlón ehf. has been offering boat tours on the lagoon for over 25 years. The company operates four amphibians boats and two Zodiacs boats. On the amphibian passengers board the vehicle on land and it then takes you on a wonderful excursion amongst icebergs in the beautiful picturesque environment. You get to taste the 1000 years old ice from the lagoon and if you’re lucky you might see some curious seals. The amphibian excursion takes about 30 – 40 minutes. On the Zodiac you get to experience the lagoon on a different level; you get closer to the icebergs and when conditions allow it, the captain on the boat takes you nearly all the way to the edge of the glacier (as close as is safe). The Zodiac tour is about one hour. In the café you can get a variety of refreshments such as sandwiches, coffee, hot chocolate and soft drinks.

The boat tours are in operation from April to November (depending on weather) and the café is open all year.

“More amazing in person than in photos”

When planning a trip to Iceland for a long weekend I came across photos of this lagoon and became obsessed with seeing it. I am happy to say it did not disappoint and was just as magnificent in person as in the pictures.

We were fortunate to visit on a crisp sunny day. We took the zodiac boat into the lagoon and the guide plucked out a small piece of ice for us all to taste (such a crystal clear taste). We saw some seals playing in the water as well.

We did this as a day trip from Reykyavik so it made for a very long day but was absolutely worth it and would love to go back in the future.
