March - October
The Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon Zodiac Boat Tour is a great way to experience an iceberg boat tour in stunning surroundings. Often overlooked by visitors in favor of the larger Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, Fjallsárlón has been a well-kept secret in the South East. The lagoon offers beautiful views of Vatnajökull Glacier, the largest glacier in Europe.
After meeting your guide and group (max. 10 persons per boat), you’ll start off by suiting up in warm overalls. You’ll then walk down to the glacier lagoon and take off on your adventure. During the tour, you’ll glide amongst floating icebergs that break off the slowly crawling glacier. Each iceberg is unique in color and form and on a zodiac boat, you’ll get the chance to get up close to the best ones. Your experienced guide will also give you information about the glacier, as well as the landscape and history of the lagoon and it’s surrounding area.
The Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon Zodiac Boat Tour departs multiple times daily from 9:30 in the morning. In the high summer season, the last departure is at 17:30. You can easily combine this tour with another adventure, such as a glacier hike in Skaftafell.
The tour is about 1,5 hours in total, that includes time to get into warm overalls and get an introduction of the tour. Time spent on the lagoon is about 45 minutes.
