Jump aboard this incredible boat trip in one of the world’s most inspiring places: the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Cruise between the marvellous icebergs that make this site so beautiful and well-renowned. 

To begin this tour, you will meet at the cafe at Jökulsárlón twenty minutes before your departure, where you can exchange your vouchers for boat tickets. From here, you will proceed to board the amphibious vessel on land and wait for it to drive into the water.

No doubt, before getting aboard, you will have been marvelling at the spectacle of Jökulsárlón. When immersed in the lagoon, however, with the icebergs surrounding you from all angles, you will experience a different kind of beauty; this otherworldly environment is simply breathtaking.

You will spend forty minutes exploring the lagoon. There will be an English-speaking guide on board who will tell you all about the area's formation, history and future. You will even have an opportunity to taste the ice; considering it is thought to be about a thousand years old, this is quite the unique experience.

As you cruise through the lagoon, keep an eye out for seals. Many of these adorable creatures call Jökulsárlón home, and they can often be seen playing in the water or basking on the bergs.

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. Once the tour is complete, however, do not forget to take a walk to the Diamond Beach to see where the bergs wash up after reaching the sea. A full day could be spent exploring this area, but the boat tour is sure to be the highlight.

Do not miss your opportunity to see Jökulsárlón from amongst the ancient ice. Book now to make sure you get your place on board. Check availability by choosing a date.

This experience was one of the most amazing things I've ever participated in. Words cannot describe how amazing these sights are so you just gotta experience it for yourself. I can't wait to come back and see how the other seasons like again.

What an amazing experience and an incredibly beautiful, unique spot. Definitely a must see in anyones travels to Iceland.

This was the most outstanding bit of our 3-day tour in October 17 and well worth the long drives to get here!! Check out the waterfalls on the way to break up the journey but we did there and back again in one day from Reykavik

It was amazing experience you could have in your life! Our guide Rose was made this tour the most enjoyable. Highly recommend this trip to whoever come to Iceland!


It was a breathtakingly beautiful experience!!!! Our guide Sebastian was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the glaciers and icebergs. It was a delight to see the seals swimming in the water around the icebergs. This is a not to be missed - must do experience

Great spending, perfect organization, incredible views, it was worth the price

It was wonderfull!!... We had a raining day, but it was just incredible to be wet and to enjoy the ice sculptures drifting on the lagoon. We saw also one seal laying on the ice what it was a kind of present. Clara (the tour guide of our boat) was very friendly and we enjoyed the conversations with her. We wouldn't miss that! Would you?...

Even in rain the tour was worth it! Beautiful, and educational.

The lagoon is amazing! The guide showed a great passion!

Le tour est très bien organisé. Paysages magnifiques et variés. 10 jours fantastiques ni trop longs, ni trop courts.

The lagoon is a beautiful place with icebergs floating like pieces of natural sculpture. The guide was very nice and informative. There are a lot of birds in the area. Highly recommended.

It was great. We got on the boat right away without waiting. Got close to icebergs. Tour guide was great as well!

Happy and amazing !
