Frequently Asked Questions

About Boat Tours in Iceland

Boat tours provide you with opportunities for adventures on the high seas and Iceland's immense and tranquil lakes throughout the year. Explore the majestic Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon or undertake whale watching excursions and immerse yourself in Iceland's world of aquatic wonders.

1. Can I take a boat tour onto Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon?

From May to October, you can explore Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon on an amphibious vessel, and in October, you can do so on a zodiac boat.

2. Can I take boat tours to see the northern lights?

Yes, from Reykjavík and many of the towns in North Iceland.

3. Will I see whales and dolphins on my boat tour?

You are not guaranteed to see any whales or dolphins, even on a whale watching tour, but anytime you take a vessel to the sea in Iceland, you have a great chance of doing so. Most whale watching operators have an over 90% success rate in spotting whales.
