Sit-on-top kayaks are a great way to safely explore the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. You’ll paddle across blue waters and get up close and personal with icebergs fresh off the Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier. These icebergs feature every imaginable hue of blue due to ice compression. Some icebergs also display gray shadows slicing through the — layers of ash that look like beautiful scars left by ancient volcanic eruptions.
The water runs from the ice lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean and washes the blue natural ice sculptures onto a unique black sand beach. Bright blue ice dramatically contrasts with the black Diamond Beach, creating scenery you won’t see anywhere else.
If you’re lucky, you may spot some seals who frequent the area, playing between the crystal icebergs.
Our kayaking tours are suitable for both beginner and experienced paddlers. For this tour, we use sit-on-top kayaks that are safe and easy to navigate. You’ll be accompanied by an expert guide who knows the lagoon like the back of their hand. The guide will tell you about the history, nature, and wildlife in the area. They’ll also make sure that you’re comfortable paddling your kayak and that you remain safe at all times.
