Immerse yourself in the icebergs of the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon on a breathtaking adventure with this once-in-a-lifetime kayaking tour. Book your summer trip into one of the most spectacular corners of the world while availability lasts. 

On this trip, you’ll arrive at the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, a vast lake filled with ice between a glacier tongue and the ocean. The final South Coast sightseeing route attraction and part of the Vatnajokull National Park, its beauty has earned it the nickname Iceland’s crown jewel. Your guides will be waiting for you in the parking lot.

After introductions, they will provide you with a two-piece kayak suit, a lifevest, boots, a paddle, and a kayak, which come in solo and double varieties. Once you’ve dressed up and been briefed, your guides will lead you into the azure waters. The kayaks are very stable, making the journey safe and enjoyable even for beginners. 

Most travelers to Jokulsarlon only get to see the icebergs from shore or a larger boat, and though these experiences are incredible, they don’t compare to the kayak. As you paddle almost at water level, you’ll have your breath taken by the scale of the bergs around you, as well as their vivid coloration and magnificent textures.

You can even break off little pieces to taste the fresh ice of the glacier.

Adding more to this experience is the fact that the lagoon is pregnant with life. Many seals swim through the waters and relax on the ice, and some curious ones might come up to you for a closer look. Furthermore, they’ll be plenty of seabirds to point out as you travel.

Your pace will be friendly and casual so that you don’t overexert yourself, and you’ll have plenty of time to ask your guide questions and take your photos. 

Don’t miss your once-in-a-lifetime chance to kayak across the waters of the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Check availability by choosing a date.
