Explore the beautiful Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in a new and exciting way; in a Hovercraft. This is Iceland’s only hovercraft excursion making it perfect for those looking for a unique way to experience one of Iceland’s most beautiful attractions.

Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon has been nicknamed “The Crown Jewel of Iceland” due to its unquestionable magnificence. Brilliant blue and white pieces of ice break away from a nearby glacier and drift through the lagoon’s crystal waters out to sea, resulting in a breathtaking elegance that will have you spellbound.

Hovercrafts are unique vessels that use blowers to produce a large amount of air below the hull causing these remarkable boats to rise above the surface of the water. You could wish for no smoother journey as you float alongside beautiful blocks of ancient glacial ice. Additionally, you can enjoy the comfort of being fully enclosed inside the vessel, promising protection from any strong winds or weather.

Your journey begins at Hali farm which is only a short drive from Jökulsárlón and offers free parking. Here, you will meet your expert local guide who will drive you in a Jeep to the hovercraft. Once you are onboard, your pilot will weave between the ice so you can enjoy the impressive structures up close.

As well as leading you between icebergs, your guide will provide information about the history of Jökulsárlón as well as information about the craft in which you are cruising. Keep an eye out for resident seals who can often be spotted playing among the floating ice. You will be on the lagoon between 45-60 minutes and the entire excursion will be 1.5-2 hours including the drive from Hali farm.

Sail between icebergs and book this exciting and unique tour before it sells out. Check availability by choosing a date.

Our guide was great and we really enjoyed the whole experience. My significant other expressed an interest in seeing seals as well, and our tour guide went out of his way to go searching for some. Highly recommended!

The programme is new and awesome! Stone was our guide and he is nice to represent the information and history of glacier to us. Our journey around 1.5hr-2hrs, Stone leaded us between icebergs as well.

Stone was our guide and was great. He was very knowledgeable about the land. It rained during our trip, so we were very happy to be covered for the majority of the ride.
