About tour

Experience one of Iceland’s most famous attractions by exploring it on an amphibian boat tour. We invite you to explore the astonishing and exotic natural beauty of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. It is recognized as one of the most breathtaking places in the world. A huge number of tourists visit this natural wonder every year and capture its beauty through their camera lens.

The lagoon can be appreciated from the shore, but joining an amphibian boat tour allows you to get up close to beautiful and unusually-colored icebergs floating in the water. You might even get lucky and glimpse seals relaxing on the ice!

Meet on location means traveling to the location of the tour yourself and then meeting our tour guides rather than being picked up and taken to the location.

This tour is available between the months of May and October.

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick-up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide.

Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.

The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.

Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain the storage of carbon in the soil.
