Your friendly guide will meet you at the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon parking lot by the big blue pickup truck at least 30 minutes before your departure time. There is a short bus ride to the dock. Strap on your flotation suit or life vest and get ready for an incredible Iceland glacier tour that will take you to Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier, into the deep serenity of the lagoon.
You get a full hour of cruising on the lagoon, exploring the majestic sights, and seeing the wildlife. You might glimpse seabirds or the odd seal. In summer, you will see migrating Arctic Terns, which fly half the circumference of the globe. We will also keep a lookout for giant seagulls and majestic Arctic Skuas that nest around the edge of the lake.
Cruising between these vast, amazingly shaped icebergs is a magical and dream-like experience, adored by photographers and sightseers alike. In the icebergs, you will see incredible, bright blue tones and gray streaks formed from the ash residue of volcanic eruptions. The icebergs' mirror-like reflections in the water and the spellbinding glacial scenery are sure to keep your camera busy.
There may even come a time in the future when this disappears, making the lagoon part of an inlet. So, we recommend using your time to explore the area! Walk a short distance to the ocean to watch small icebergs floating out to sea - many people describe this as a mystical and hypnotic sight. The official name of this coal-black beach is Breiðamerkursandur. For some time, it has been better known as 'The Diamond Beach,' named in honor of the magnificent icebergs that shimmer like diamonds as they rest on the black volcanic sand.
