Head out to the magnificent glacial lagoon Jokulsarlon, and follow in the footsteps of James Bond in "Die Another Day" and Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider". This exhilarating full-day excursion from Reykjavik takes you along Iceland's southern coastline, known for its exquisite mountain scenery.
Highlights
  • Led by a local guide
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
Many of Iceland's biggest glacier rivers run into the Atlantic Ocean on the country's southern shore. Along the way to this amazing coastline you'll pass charming villages such as Selfoss, Vik and Kirkjubaejarklaustur, as well as the Skogarfoss waterfall and Skaftafell National Park. You'll also drive through the vast desert of Skeidarasandur, where sand storms can be so powerful they've been known to strip the paint off a car!
Just before you reach the lagoon, you'll pass Iceland's biggest volcano, Oraefajokull glacier, which also has the highest peak of the island, Hvannadalshnjukur, at 6950 feet (2119 meters).
At the lagoon you will have time to view this stunning area before taking a boat ride. But these are no ordinary boats! They are capable of driving short distances as well as sailing on water - something quite unique!
Jokulsarlon lagoon started to form in the early 1920s, and is growing bigger every year. You will see blocks of ice that have broken off Europe's biggest glacier, Vatnajokull, and are sailing slowly towards the ocean, which is only a mile away. Some of the icebergs are partially covered with volcanic ash from ancient eruptions, and look like sculptures, made by Mother Nature herself!
This tour is seasonal, operating from June to August only.
