Sailing On The Jokulsarlon

After we arrive at the lagoon we have some time to view this stunning area before we take a boat tour among stunning Icebergs. The boat which takes us is capable of driving short distances on land and sail on the water. Jokulsarlon started to form in the early 1920s and is getting bigger every year. You will see many amazing blocks of ice that have broken from Europe’s biggest glacier, Vatnajokull as they float slowly towards the ocean which is only a kilometre away. We also visit the breathtaking Diamond beach where many of the smaller icebergs have stranded on the shore.

 

After a refreshing boat tour on the glacier lagoon, (if you wish and when it is available) we will head back to Reykjavik.
