Nature lovers looking to get a unique perspective of ‘The Crown Jewel of Iceland’ should grab this chance now.
Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is one of the most beloved spots in the country. It is located in the realm of the great Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier. It is here where icebergs that have broken off outlet glacier Breiðamerkurjökull float on aquamarine waters as they make their way towards the Atlantic Ocean.
For this tour, you will meet your guide at the parking lot of Jökulsárlón, located just by Iceland’s road number 1, the Ring Road. After a short introduction and explanation of your upcoming adventure, you will be provided with a floatation suit and a lifejacket.
Then you will board the Zodiac boat and head on out to the lagoon. The boat is a speedy little vessel that can easily hold a number of people while navigating between the huge icebergs. You will also be able to get closer to the ice than on another vessel, providing you with a fantastic experience and great photo opportunities.
The icebergs on the lagoon are as varied as they are many. You will be able to watch as they drift by, sometimes bumping into each other or flipping over. Their electric blue and pure white colours are sure to mesmerise you, as well as the crackling sound they make as they move about in the water.
While you take in the beauty of the lagoon, your guide will tell you all about glaciers and this stunning area. You should also keep an eye out for some resident seals, as you could spot a few swimming in the water or resting upon the ice.
