Pristine beauty Glacier Walk and Zodiac boat tour

Zodiac boat & Glacier Walk


In this glacier tour, you will experience the wonders of Vatnajökull National Park where you can both walk on Vatnajökull Europe’s largest ice cap and also go on a Zodiac Boat tour on Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon.

This tour is in two sperate locations, self-drive in between locations.

This is what we recommend for your glacier tours:

Zodiac boat tour on Fjallsárlón 10:30, lunch at the meeting point in Fjallsárlón Restaurant, visit Glacier Lagoon, take a walk to the Black Diamond Beach and then be ready for the Glacier walking tour at Glacier Adventure base camp in Hali at 14:00.  Zodiac boat tour is operated by our local friends from Fjallarlon.

Meeting point for both location:

Glacier Adventure glacier walk, meeting point

In this combo glacier tour, you can enjoy two different glacier experience, take a walk on the wild side by doing a glacier hike with a local guide and enjoy a pristine Zodiac boat tour on the less visited but stunning Fjallsárlón. This tour is recommended for those who want to see the glacier from different points of view. The glacier we will visit is called Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier from Europes biggest glacier, Vatnajökull.

Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon is one of the hidden treasure in Vatnajökull National park, where you can see how the natural forces of the glacier have shaped the landscape throughout the centuries. During the boat tour you can explore the towering glacier and floating icebergs that create a dazzling show all unique in color, shape and sizes. After the  tour we recommend that you enjoy lunch at the restaurant located on-site.  Afterwards we recommend that you drive ( 10 min )  to the Diamond Beach and take a walk where you often can see small icebergs that look like diamonds

The Zodiac Boat Tours are operated by fjallsarlon.is
