On the Zodiac we are able to cover large areas of the glacier lagoon and get closer to the icebergs than on the amphibian. When possible the Zodiac goes almost all the way up to the glacier (as close as safe)

Tour Description

CRUISE THE JOKULSARLON GLACIER LAGOON

You get a full hour cruising on the lagoon, exploring the majestic sights, and seeing the wildlife. You might glimpse seabirds or the odd seal. In summer, you will see migrating Arctic Terns, which fly half the circumference of the globe. We will also keep a lookout for giant seagulls and majestic Arctic Skuas that nest around the edge of the lake.  

Cruising between these vast, amazingly shaped icebergs is a magical and dream-like experience, adored by photographers and sightseers alike. In the icebergs, you will see incredible, bright blue tones and gray streaks formed from the ash residue of volcanic eruptions. The icebergs’ mirror-like reflections in the water and the spellbinding glacial scenery are sure to keep your camera busy.  

There may even come a time in the future when this disappears, making the lagoon part of an inlet. So, we recommend using your time to explore the area! Walk a short distance to the ocean to watch small icebergs floating out to sea – many people describe this as a mystical and hypnotic sight. The official name of this coal-black beach is Breiðamerkursandur. For some time, it has been better known as ‘The Diamond Beach,’ named in honor of the magnificent icebergs that shimmer like diamonds as they rest on the black volcanic sand.

FAQ

WHAT DOES MEET ON LOCATION ENTAIL?

Meet on location means travelling to the location of the tour yourself and then meeting our tour guides rather than being picked up and taken to the location.

HOW IS IT BEST TO BE READY FOR A PICK-UP FOR A TOUR WITH ARCTIC ADVENTURES?

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide.

Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

CAN I DRINK ALCOHOL BEFORE OR DURING ARCTIC ADVENTURES TOURS?

Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.

After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.

DO YOU OFFER ANY FAMILY FRIENDLY TOURS, FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN?

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our super jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

IS THERE A GUIDE ON EACH ARCTIC ADVENTURES TOUR?

Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.

All of our tours are guided in English.

CAN THE GUIDE ADVISE IF I AM ELIGIBLE FOR RESCHEDULING THE TOUR AND/OR A REFUND?

No, for all your questions and concerns you would need to contact our customer service.

WHAT TYPE OF POWER OUTLETS ARE USED IN ICELAND? DO I NEED TO BRING AN ADAPTER?

The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.

HOW ARE THE TOURS RATED IN TERMS OF DIFFICULTY?

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.
