Overview

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is the largest ice lagoon in Iceland. The lagoon is filled with giant incredibly shaped icebergs - blue ice, transparent ice, opaque ice and even deep jewel blue ice. The atmospheric gray streaks showing within some of the icebergs will remind you Iceland is a volcanic land with a great fiery heart - the dramatic land of fire and ice!

Itinerary

Information

A boat tour on Jökulsárlón is will take you to parts of the ice lagoon you would not see any other way - into vistas which are simply sensational.

The grand Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon began to form at the edge of Breiðamerkurjökull, a glacier tongue of Vatnajökull around 1934. In 1975 the lake had grown to 7.9 km2, since that time the rate of growth has accelerated quite a lot because the glaciers in Iceland are receding faster. Recently, the surface area covered 18.2 km2, as the glacier continues to recede this kind of growth can only increase. This is the deepest natural lake in Iceland, at its greatest the depth is 284 m. To really enjoy the Jökulsárlón area you should allow enough time to explore the area around the lagoon and a walk to the nearby Diamond Beach. The icebergs which come to rest on the rough black sand are stunning, this surreal sight is something which no visitor to Iceland should miss out on.

We will meet you at Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon parking lot, located just off the Ring Road (#1).
