We took a 3 Day Jokulsarlon tour with Glacier Lagoon, Glacier Hiking & Ice Cave. The 5 hour drive didn't bother us much since there was plenty to see along the way even though the weather was rainy during the trip. In our second day of the tour we had a half day free day. So we managed to get... More

I saw some picture on the internet, but it's really not the same thing to see it on the side of the beach. I read some review that said that you didn't have to take the boat to visit it and I'm agree. Take a little walk in the morning on the beach and admire the landcaspe of the lagoon... More

We are just back from four days in Iceland and, although we had a five hour drive to get there, this has been my favourite place. It is unbelievable and something I never thought I would ever see. Fantastically mystical and worth every single mile to get to it. Tips: Don't visit too late as you need the sunshine to... More

I don't think words will justify the beauty of this place. You simply have to go there to experience the magic, serenity and beauty for yourself. Go in the summer to take a boat tour around the icebergs!

It was quite late in the evening and we arrived knowing that every tour would be closed. We were delighted and surprised with the last and very late tour, as the weather had been bad during the afternoon, while a nice sun and awesome light had graced the evening. We took a bus that take us round the artic tern's... More

This place contains icebergs calved from the largest glacier of Iceland. You can go by boat in the lagoon and watch the icebergs. Hopefully you will also see some seals.

breathtaking in beauty and temperature. Well out the way on the east of the island takes a long while to get there but is so worth it. Be sure to take the boat ride around the lagoon. layer up and don forget your gloves! This was amazing and something i will never forget seeing!

I'm honestly not sure that I can offer anything additional to what's already been said about this place, but I'm going to try just the same. It IS magical. It IS breathtakingly beautiful. It IS otherworldly. It's one of those places that actually can't accurately be captured in photographs. You think those shades of blue must be enhanced, that there's... More

We visited this magical place during winter. What a place! Soft snow falling on us as we strolled in deep snow around the ice-berg lagoon. Scores of birds were making icebergs their home. We saw at least two to three families of sea lions or seals popping up and down in the lagoon - they did not surface and we... More

This place was amazing, and, right off the road. You can see plenty right from the beach and the icebergs are close enough to grab. We grabbed a small bite of one little icicle. May have been 2,000 year old ice. A dream for photographers.
