Glacier Lagoon Tour
Season: All year round, Tuesdays and Fridays Duration: 14 hours
Glacier Lagoon tour takes you to visit the charming village of Vík and continues through spectacular scenery, lava fields, and a black sandy desert all the way to the magnificent Glacier Lagoon Jokulsarlon (Jökulsárlón). You will also be able to walk between the icebergs on the so-called “Diamond” or “Crystal”beach. This is a black sand beach at the coastline near the Glacier Lagoon and, very often, there are many icebergs washed up on to the beach which makes for a spectacular view (please note: this cannot be guaranteed, as it depends on the tide/the wind, etc. whether and how many icebergs will be washed up there).
Our journey continues on to the turf church at Hof (Hofskirkja) and then Skaftafell National Park where we make a stop at Svínafellsjökull glacier tongue. As we make our way back towards Reykjavik we might be able to catch a glimpse of the eternal kiss of the Icelandic trolls along the way, before we will visit the serene, beautiful 100-meter deep Fjadrargljufur (Fjaðrárgljúfur) canyon (may not be accessible). We will also make a stop at one of the most famous and beautiful waterfalls – Seljalandsfoss. There may also be extra stops if time allows.
The Glacier Lagoon tour is truly something you will never forget!

We do reserve the right to alter the tour as needed if road or weather conditions are unfavorable. Fjaðrargljúfur may not be accessible in winter conditions (depends on the amount of snow and road conditions). But other extra stops will be made. Due to fewer daylight hours from November to February, much of the driving to and from the sights will be in darkness, but the main sight of this tour – Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon will be visited during daylight hours.
All departures require a minimum of 4 participants in order to operate. Gateway to Iceland reserves the right to delay, alter or cancel any tour due to weather or any other unsafe conditions for the safety of our clients.
Svínafellsjökull: the road up to the glacier tongue is in a dangerous state, therefore this sight has to be skipped until further notices.
