This tour starts from Höfn with a pick up from your accommodation
Hotel pick-up time: 9:00 AM
After picking you up from your accommodation in Höfn and head towards the west. Our first stop is at Hoffelssjökull glacier lagoon. Here we will take a good time to walk around, photograph and explore the area around the lagoon. In about 30 minutes driving distance we find Fláajökull glacier lagoon. We will be spending around 20 minutes at this location taking in the magnificent surroundings before we make our way to the farm Hólmur where we have the opportunity to get to know Icelandic domestic animals in the friendly petting zoo. We will have a nice lunch at Hólmur where you have the opportunity to taste a locally brewed beer. We leave Hólmur farm and carry on with our lagoon quest. Heinabergsjökull glacier lagoon is next on our agenda. The serenity of this secluded lagoon is perfect to take in with a stroll along the shore or just by finding a nice spot for a relaxing doze in the wild. Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is perhaps the best-known lagoon we will visit today. It attracts thousands of travelers every year and for a good reason. We follow the path of the icebergs towards the see and spend some time on the crystal beach right next to this lagoon. The crystal beach gets its name from the many pieces of ice that lie on the black sand beach like thousands of bits of broken crystal glasses.
The last lagoon visited on this day-tour is Fjallsárlón glacier lagoon. This lagoon is quite unique and its attraction has been growing in the past few years. You have a chance to get some refreshments in the café before we head back to Höfn.
