The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon Zodiac Boat Tour is the perfect addition to a day in the Vatnajökull National Park. On this tour, you will gently sail on this famous glacier lagoon. During the tour, you can get closer to the icebergs that float on the lagoon.
After meeting up with your captain at the Glacier Lagoon, you will suit up in warm overalls and appropriate safety gear. Your guide will give you a briefing on the upcoming adventure before you head out on the lagoon. As the zodiac boat sails amongst the icebergs, your guide will tell you about the secrets of the lagoon.
The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon Zodiac Boat Tour departs multiple times daily from 9:00 in the morning. In May, the last tour departs at 16:00, but in the high summer season, the last departure is at 17:00. You can easily combine this tour with another adventure, such as a glacier hike in Skaftafell.
