Glacier Magic: Glacier Walk & Zodiac Boat

Glacier Lagoon Zodiac & Glacier Walk

GLACIER MAGIC COMBO TOUR: ZODIAC BOAT & GLACIER WALK

On this combo tour, you will be able to experience the wonders of Vatnajökull National Park, walk on Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest ice cap, and embark on a Zodiac boat tour on the beautiful Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.

The Glacier Walk on Vatnajökull is operated by Glacier Adventure and the Zodiac Boat is operated by our local friends from IceLagoon. The tours start in two separate locations, you will need to drive between locations.

Itinerary & Time :

Glacier Walk on Vatnajökull at 9:00-13:00 & Zodiac Boat Tour at 15:25-17:25

or vice versa

Zodiac Boat Tour at 10:00 -12:00 & Glacier Walk on Vatnajökull at 14:00-18:00

This tour is recommended for everyone that wants to see & experience the glacier from different points of view. The glacier we will visit on the Glacier Walk is called Breiðarmerkurjökull and is an outlet glacier from Europe’s biggest glacier, Vatnajökull. This is the same glacier that is gradually breaking down and calving into the Glacier Lagoon.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is one of the most popular attractions in Iceland. At Jökulsárón you can see floating icebergs in all sizes, shapes, and colors that have broken down from Breiðarmerkurjökull and are drifting out to sea. We recommend that you take a walk by the lagoon and visit Diamond Beach before/after your boat tour.

Vatnajökull National park is the perfect place to experience unspoiled nature and a unique environment.
