Jokulsarlon

Jokulsarlon

Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon is one of Iceland’s most visited areas and a truly spectacular sight.

Board an amphibian boat and set sail across the lagoon, cruising past huge icebergs and the picturesque scenery of Jokulsarlon (mid April-mid October only).

Located on the edge of the Vatnajokull National Park, groups can also enjoy a number of other visits in the park:

Skaftafell Visitor Centre

Pay a visit to the Skaftafell Visitor Centre for information about Vatnajokull National Park and its neighbourhood, hiking routes, nature, history and nearby recreational options. Groups can enjoy a talk from the ranger and watch an interesting video about jokulhlaups (glacial floods).  

There is also a souvenir shop, filled with books, postcards and local handicrafts to purchase.
