En route to Jökulsárlón we will pass some charming villages, fertile farmlands as well as Skaftafell National Park and visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall and Skógafoss waterfall. Just before we reach the glacial lagoon, we pass Iceland’s largest volcano, Örćfajökull glacier, with the highest peak on the island, Hvannadalshnjúkur (2110 m).

Upon arrival at Jökulsárlón we have some time to view this stunning area before taking a boat tour amongst the massive floating icebergs on the lagoon. Please note that the boat tours are not available during April departures due to the amount of ice on the lagoon. The boat tours upon the lagoon are expected to commence in early May.
The boats that carry us are no ordinary boats since they are capable of driving short distances on land as well as sailing on the water.

Jökulsárlón began forming during the early nineteen twenties and is increasing in size every year. You will see countless amazing blocks of ice that have broken off Europe’s biggest glacier, Vatnajökull, as they sail slowly towards the ocean which is only a kilometer away.

After a refreshing boat tour on the glacial lagoon, we will be heading back to Reykjavík.
