Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon Experience

A shuttle will pick you up in Reykjavik half an hour before departure, or between 07:00 and 07:30. Afterwards we leave Reykjavik and drive along the south coast, passing the towns of Hveragerði and Selfoss. In reasonable weather you are likely to see the Westman Islands south of Iceland. During the drive you will also see plenty of big and small waterfalls plunge down mountain sites. We will also pass the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano which in 2010 paralysed air traffic. You will also pass the larger waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss.

After passing the towns of Vik and Kirkjubæjarklaustur we reach the lagoon located at the foot of Vatnajökull glacier. Here you can see giant ice bergs move from the glacier towards the ocean. Some of them are brought back to land nearby which is why the beach nearby is often called diamond beach.

In the lagoon itself you may see seals swimming between the ice bergs. After a boat ride (not included) you head back to Reykjavik. The drive from the lagoon to our capital is about 370 km.

You arrive back around 22:00, just in time for a nightcap.

Included

  • Bus fare
  • Guided tour
  • Pick-up 30 minutes before departure.

Tips and Trivia

  • James Bond has been there twice, once impersonated by Roger Moore in 1985 and once by Pierce Brosnan in 2002.
  • Please stay on the paths for your own safety.
  • In "Batman Begins" Christian Bale received his training here. With the lagoon and area standing in for the Himalayas.
  • Click here for a private tour.
  • Since this is a long tour we recommend to bring at least some snacks and something to drink. Food can be purchased along the way.
  • For your own safety please do not try to jump between the icebergs. There have been such cases in recent years where rescue squads and helicopters had to get involved to save people who were stranded or stuck. The water is ice cold and falling into it can be dangerous.
  • Check out our Bus Stops in Reykjavík page to find out about pickup in the city center.

Additional Information

Remember to bring warm clothing and rain gear.

Free cancellation per email possible up to 24 hours prior to the tour.

Highlights

Glacier Lagoon

At Jökulsárlón you will see icebergs which break of Vatnajökull glacier float into the ocean.

The lagoon is filled with fishes that drift in from the sea along with the tides. Seals gather in large numbers at the mouth of the lagoon to catch the fish during the winter. A great addition to this experience is taking a boat tour.

Hraunfossar

Hraunfossar ( Icelandic for “lava waterfalls” ) is a series of waterfalls in the west of Iceland. The total length of this series of waterfalls is of about 900 meters. These waterfalls plunge into Hvitá river ( Icelandic for “the white river”) which originates on Langjökull glacier and later on plunges down Gullfoss waterfall before flowing into Ölfusá river in Selfoss. Almost right next to them or a bit upstream you find the waterfall barnafoss. 

Additional stops:

  • The Museum in Skogar which gives you an insight into the life in Iceland of the past.
  • The Lava centre in Hvolsvöllur where you can learn more about volcanic activity in Iceland.
