We stopped and took pictures one day and went back for the tour/boat ride the next day. Glad we stopped the first day for pics because the sun was out and made for great shots. The next day for the boat ride it was cloudy. The Zodiac boat tour was the most personal one.

This was a highlight in Southern Iceland. The lagoon is majestic. The icebergs are just something that has to be seen. Take warm clothes (it's colder at the lagoon than it is just a kilometer away). There is a shop or two, toilets and a cafe/deli...there are also a pile of tourists and a tour boat or two. We didn't... More

This is a really amazing place - the sense of peace here is great. The ice on the beach is so beautiful. We didn't go out on a boat but enjoyed from the shoreline - you really didn't need to.

We spent the afternoon walking along the south-western shore of Jökulsárlón with great views on the icebergs and the glacier. When arriving from the west, there are two parking facilities c. 1km before you cross the bridge. We parked at the first one and it was much less crowded that it was at the main parking lot at the bridge.... More

Amazing! One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. We booked a tour for a zodiac tour, but there was too much ice, so we jumped on the next amphibian tour. There was a crowd that day, so I would say make a reservation if you really want to go out into the lagoon (you really don't have... More

Although we had a fixed time booking, chaos occurred at the ticketing desk which could not cope with the vast numbers queuing in the rain,so we departed an hour later. However the trip, in spite of the rainy weather was unbelievable and I have no hesitation in recommending the Jokulsarlon Amphibian trip as a lifetime experience.

The Jokulsarlon Lagoon takes some time to get to f you are in the Reykjavik area, especially with a speed limit of 90 kph, but this will not disappoint. Along route 1, you can take some short segues to visit Skogafoss, the Black Sands Beach in Reynisfjara Beach near Vik, and see one stunning view after another as you head... More

We did the Golden Circke and then drove south all the way up to the lagoon. It's a good distance but so worth it. I've never seen icebergs before and witnessed one splitting apart and rolling in the lagoon whilst waiting for the amphibian boat. The whole experience is one to remember. Booked with Jökulsárlón ehf, lovely people and would... More

Honestly, this was one of the most amazing sights I've ever seen. Words really can't describe how beautiful this lagoon is with all of the different sized and shaped icebergs floating around. Keep an eye out for seals. We say two of them swimming around together. Also, don't miss seeing the black sand beach across the road. Several smaller icebergs... More

This lagoon is a long drive from the Reykjavik area - 4 hours each way. If I ever go to Iceland again I will rent a HappyCampers.com and drive around the whole island to see the sights instead of trying to go back and forth from the capital area. That said seeing these icebergs is worth the drive. YES there... More
