Jump aboard this incredible boat trip in one of the world’s most inspiring places: the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Cruise between the huge icebergs in the picturesque scenery of Jökulsárlón. On this amphibian boat tour, you get to taste the 1000-year-old ice and if you are lucky you might even see some seals. This tour is perfect for families, friends or solo travelers.
Before this tour, please meet at the café at Jökulsárlón 20 minutes before your departure, where you can exchange your vouchers for amphibian boat tickets. From here, you will proceed to board the amphibious vessel on land and wait for it to drive into the lagoon.
When immersed in the lagoon, with huge icebergs surrounding you from all angles, you will experience a different kind of beauty; this stunning environment is simply breathtaking.
You will spend 35-40 minutes exploring the glacier lagoon. Your English-speaking guide on board will tell you all about the area’s history and future. You will have an opportunity to taste the glacier ice; considering it is thought to be a thousand years old, this is quite a special experience.
As you cruise through the lagoon, you’ll probably see many seals. These adorable creatures call Jökulsárlón home, and they can often be seen playing in the water or sunbathing on the icebergs.
The glacier lagoon is considered by many to be the most beautiful sight in Iceland, and an amphibious boat is one of the best ways to view it in all its glory.
Local advice: Once the tour is complete, take a walk to the Diamond Beach to see where the icebergs wash up after reaching the sea.
