Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon Boat Tour

Jökulsarlon Glacier Lagoon
Bordering Iceland's vast Vatnajökull National Park is the famed Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, known for its incredible scenery, floating icebergs, and wildlife. The lagoon connects to two of Iceland's other glaciers, Breiðamerkurjökull and Vatnajökull, Europe's largest ice cap. Eventually, the lagoon's waters flow across the black-sand beach known as Diamond Beach and into the Atlantic Ocean. Nestled between the towns of Hof and Höfn, you can find the lagoon along Iceland's popular Ring Road.

Enjoy an exciting and picturesque boat trip on the lagoon, sailing among huge, electric-blue icebergs and reveling in the striking scenery of Jökulsárlón. You may even spot some local wildlife, including Arctic Terns, Skuas, and the hundreds of seals that feed on the lagoon's fish population. You'll also learn a bit about the lagoon's history, as it formed in the 20th century due to rising temperatures. Scientists believe Jökulsárlón will eventually expand into a larger, deeper fjord.
