Description

The Glacier Lagoon - Jökulsárlón is Iceland's mystical natural wonder that you should not miss. On this day trip from Reykjavik, during the summer you will also have the opportunity to enjoy an exciting boat ride among the icebergs. Travel in a small-group which provides a more personal approach.

After picking you up from Reykjavik, the sightseeing stops on this tour formally begin in the charming village of Vík, a couple of hours from Reykjavik and continues east through spectacular scenery, lava fields and black sandy desert all the way to the magnificent Glacier Lagoon, Jökulsárlón. From May to September the tour includes an exciting 60-min long Zodiac boat ride among the icebergs.  You will also visit so-called "Diamond" or "Crystal" beach, in the right tidal conditions there are icebergs washed up on the black sand beach which provide a stunning view.

Your journey then continues on to Svinafellsjokull glacier tongue and you will be able to admire it from up close. As the tour makes its way back towards Reykjavik you might be able to catch a glimpse of the eternal kiss of the Icelandic trolls along the way before you visit the serene, beautiful 100 meter deep Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon. A short stop at a little cute turf church will be made and you will also visit one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland - Seljaladnsfoss.

Main sights and highlights include: 

  • Vík village & sea stacks
  • Svínafellsjökull glacier tongue
  • Fjadrargljufur canyon
  • Turf church at Hof
  • Seljalandsfoss waterfall
  • Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon

Please note: the itinerary of this tour is subject to change if road or weather conditions are unfavorable, especially during winter months (e.g. Fjadrargljufur might be difficult to reach). The Glacier Lagoon boats do not operate during winter. Also, due to fewer daylight hours between November and February, much of the driving to and from the sights will be in darkness.
