Glacier Magic: Glacier Walk & Zodiac Boat

ADVENTURE TOUR IN VATNAJÖKULL NATIONAL PARK

GLACIER MAGIC COMBO TOUR: ZODIAC BOAT & GLACIER WALK

On this adventure combo tour, you will be able to experience the wonders of Vatnajökull National Park. Vatnajökull National park is the perfect place to experience unspoiled nature and a unique environment. 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. See & experience the mighty glacier from different points of view on this exciting combo tour. 

The tours are led by local and professional guides to give you a safe and unforgettable experience in the breathtaking Vatnajökull region. The tours start in two separate locations, you will need to drive between locations.

Glacier Walk

Our certified and experienced glacier guides will take you on an unforgettable journey to Breiðarmerkurjökull glacier, an outlet glacier from Vatnajökull, located off the beaten path and away from the tourist crowds.

Once you step onto the ice it will feel like you are located on an icy planet.  You will see crevasses, small caves or tunnels as well as little waterfalls and streams and other beautiful ice features. During the tour, you will get the chance to learn about the glacier, its history, how it was formed, how it affects our community, and how it continues to change and shape every day.

The duration of the tour is approx 4 hours including preparation and drive (1,5 hours on the glacier).

Minimum age is 10 years old

 

Zodiac Adventure Tour

Embark on a zodiac boat adventure at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, sail amongst icebergs in all shapes and sizes up towards the glacier wall of Breiðarmerkurjökull glacier. If we are lucky we might spots some seals playing around and witness ice breaking off the glacier wall.

Your adventure begins at the Ice Lagoon Truck, where we will welcome you and provide you with flotation suits and lifejackets. After a short bus ride to our dock, our experienced guides will explain the upcoming adventure. We don’t start the clock until the boats depart from the dock, giving you a full 75 minutes on the lagoon. When onboard we will take you up to the glacier wall within a safe distance which is about 8 km ride from our dock, then we sail around huge icebergs in a breathtaking environment, take photographs and enjoy the nature and wildlife.
