Itinerary

A boat tour on Jökulsárlón will take you to parts of the ice lagoon you would not see any other way - into vistas that 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 growth rate has accelerated quite a lot because the glaciers in Iceland are receding faster. Recently, the surface area covered 18.2 km2. As the glacier recedes, this kind of growth can only increase. Jökulsárlón is the deepest natural lake in Iceland, at its greatest depth of 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 that no visitor to Iceland should miss out on.
