About the Jokulsarlon Boat Tour

In this tour we will sail amoung icebergs in the remarkable Jökulsárlón. Jökulsárlón is Iceland's most famous glacier lagoon. There are different ways to explore this scenerical beauty. On this page you can book the classic boat tour, called the amphibian boat, with an English speaking guide who explains the geology and facts about the lagoon. You can also book the kayak tour by clicking on this link. In both tours you will get the opportunity to taste the 1000 year old ice water, and if you are lucky, you might even see some seals.

No, there is no camping site by the lagoon. The whole area is a national park and camping is not allowed.
After entering the lagoon the boat stops, and the tour guide informs you about the lagoon, the icebergs and the surrounding area. The guide will also answer all the questions passengers ask and make sure they are safe.
We do not recommend that people drive their own boats on the lagoon because the icebergs are floating around. They break apart and flip over. Taking your own boat out on Jökulsárlón lagoon is on your own responsibility.
The safety of our passengers is insured by well trained staff on each boat. Our boat drivers have a lot of experience and a good knowledge about the lake. They know exactly where to drive with the boats without taking any risk. Each of the large amphibian boats is followed by a quick lifeboat for your safety.
No, people do not need any special clothes, but we don’t offer any waterproof clothing and therefore we suggest that people dress rather warm. The boats are open and without any roof. The temperature on the lake is similar to the temperature on land.
Everyone on board gets a life vest which they have to wear during the cruise. People who don’t want to wear a life vest are not allowed on the boats. The staff working in the boats are specially trained for maximum passanger safety
Yes, that’s possible. On the Amphibian boat (the boat you book on this site) we have life vests in all sizes, also for our youngest guests.
