Perfect for special occasions, photographers and everything in between. Our experienced guides will take you all the way up to the glacier edge to the majestic world of ice and untouched nature. Jokulsarlon is one of the most amazing natural wonder of Iceland and one of the most popular attractions for travelers to visit. This is the perfect place to experience unspoiled nature and unique environment where huge icebergs calve off the largest glacier in Europe, the great Vatnajokull, and float around in the lagoon of all shapes and colors.

Our trip on the lagoon was exceptionally good, the Zodiac trips are a great way of seeing the icebergs and getting close up to the glacier. The staff are very friendly and helpful and make sure your trip is a good one. We were well kitted out in floatation suits which kept us warm and dry. We felt safe in the heavy duty Zodiac boat. What I liked best of all was the unhurriedness of the tour, at no time were we rushed in fact we were indulged with time. Our guide was relaxed, exceptionally knowledgeable and informative. He didn’t realise we had been on the water for an hour when we were still at the glacier. At the point he realised he did speed up a little but it did not spoil our trip and he still ensured we got the best of what the lagoon has to offer.
The lagoon is in a fantastic setting with the glacier and mountains as a backdrop. It is peaceful and when we were there very calm. The icebergs are fascinating with different shapes, sizes and colours. Although the icebergs can be seen from the road and on paths by the side of the lagoon, the experience is enhanced and taken to a different level on a Zodiac tour, plus you get right up to the glacier and benefit from the knowledge of a guide. This is an excellent trip and very realistically priced.

Do not hesitate to take the zodiac tour. It was FANTASTIC. After we were able to get out on the lagoon (a path had to made through some icebergs), we were shown the beauty of nature. We felt very safe with head to toe floatation suits which also kept us warm en route to and from the glacier. Also, our guide was part of Iceland search and rescue so we knew we were in good hands. Top notch operation. Would love to go again!

We booked this tour online one day in advance and did not get disappointed! This tour is great and the staff working there is just amazing! They didn't book us in the tour we ordered online but that was no problem at all since they simply decided to add another boat to the tour so we could go as well. They took extra good care of us and when they saw that I was pregnant they always made sure that I was comfortable and that everything was alright. In spite of the rain in the beginning of the tour it turned out amazing! Being able to get so close to the glacier and to see all the new blue ice rocks in the water was an unbelievable experience! We were able to ask all kinds of questions and take photos wherever and as long as we wanted! Definitely the boat tour to go onto if you are at Jökulsárlón!!!

This is a great dingy ride around the Glacier Lagoon. You go in a boat, like a white water rafting boat with an engine. You tour around the floating icebergs and than take the 4 mile ride out to the glacier. It is fun, stunning, and interesting and worth every penny and it is only around $50. If you go to Iceland, don't miss doing this.

We did a zodiac tour with Ice Lagoon tours in early August during our road trip around the ring road. We did the first tour in the morning and had the boat to ourselves. It was our favorite experience of the entire trip! The small zodiac boat allowed us to see the icebergs and glacier up close. Our guide was absolutely fantastic -- his enthusiasm for the beauty of the lagoon and the movements of the individual icebergs was infectious, and it was impossible not to be moved by the experience. Highly, highly recommended!!
