Description

Along our way to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon we pass some charming villages as well as Skaftafell National Park and visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall and Þorvaldseyri Volcano museum. Jökulsárlón is one of the most amazing natural wonders of Iceland and one of the most popular attractions for travellers to visit. The lagoon started to form in 1934 when the glacier started to retreat in the area. In 1956 the size of the lagoon was 4,5 square kilometers and in 1975 the lagoon had reached the size of 8 square kilometers. Today, the size of the lagoon is estimated to be around 25 square kilometers and it’s constantly getting larger as approximately 500 square meters of ice break off the glacier every year. Jökulsárlón is the deepest lake in Iceland with maximum depth of 260 meters in front of the glacier edge.

As soon as you arrive, you’re hit with unspoiled nature where huge icebergs calve off Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. Suddenly, you’re hit with ice in all shapes and colours and they change as the sun changes or as clouds move in at a particular angle. It’s nothing short of majestic, surreal and overwhelmingly beautiful. On our way back we visit Skógafoss waterfall and the Skóga museum. We recommend an exciting boat trip on the glacier lagoon in an amphibian boat or in a Zodiac (not included, booked on site). During the excursion you sail among the huge icebergs in the picturesque scenery of Jökulsárlón. On the boat you get to taste the 1000 year old ice and if you are lucky you might even see some seals. The excursion takes 30–40 minutes and includes an English speaking guide who explains to you the geology and the facts of the lagoon. Boat tours are only available from 15.May to 30.September. Duration: 12 hours. Attention: Prices are per vehicle, not per person.

When booking for 1-3 passengers you select 1 in “Transfer 1-3 persons (per vehicle)” but if you want two vehicles you select 2. Same applies when booking for 4-8 passengers.
