Overview

See the icebergs of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in a unique way on this family-friendly boat tour. Get a closer look at the surreal beauty of Vatnajökull National Park and the seals that call Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon their home. 

Jökulsárlón is renowned for its spectacular natural beauty. Here, massive icebergs that have broken off a nearby glacier float on a serene lake. Though the scene is breathtaking when you are standing on the black-sand shore, it is nothing compared to the up-close experience you get on a boat tour.

The boat is an amphibious boat, meaning that you’ll board it on dry land, and then the captain will drive it into the lake. You’ll undoubtedly feel a rush of nervousness when the vessel hits the water, but just know that the boat is totally safe. Your guide will also provide you with live vests before you board, so there is really nothing to worry about… except maybe getting a fantastic photo of the icebergs.

Getting a great photo shouldn’t be too hard to do. The amphibious boat moves at a slow, comfortable pace between the massive icebergs, making this a fantastic tour for both professional and amateur photographers looking for a great shot of the bergs or many of the seals that live in these waters.

The slow pace of the boat and the fact that there is no minimum age for this tour also makes this excursion perfect for families. It is a great adventure they can share with both the youngest ones as well as grandma.
