If you're going to take the time to drive all the way out to Jokulsarlon you owe it to yourself to do the zodiac boat tour as well. From the shore, the glacier is deceptively far away. From the shore you can see icebergs that...More

Went here in the middle of August 2017. By far one of the most beautiful sights we have seen (and we have seen a lot of them!). Jokulsarlon is a spot where the glacier falls into a lagoon on its way to the sea. You...More

We went in August, but it was cloudy so we wore jackets, scarfs, and gloves, and it was still a bit chilly, but the place is just amazing. I expected the ice to be more blue, but the amount of colours is just impressive, all...More

My wife decided to undertake the 8 and a half hour round trip from our Fludir base based on viewing some pictures online of Jokarlson. She was viewing it as the one thing that she wanted to see in Iceland so we went for it...More

We did a zodiac tour of this incredible iceberg lagoon. Our guide was knowledgeable about the lagoon and adjacent glacier. He's a local farmer so he gave us lots of information about the sheep farming in the area as well. The tour company was "...More

My first experience watching massive icebergs floating around. It is mesmerizing and a must see. Please do visit the lagoon and take the boat ride.

What a beautiful place to visit! Extremely large chunks of ice floating around with seals seeming to play amongst them. Absolutely fascinating to think these 'ice cubes' are thousands of years old. Amazing views to the glacier even though we just stayed on the shoreline...More

This place is truly magnificent. The ice with the mountains in the background, the black rock around, and the blue blue water is gorgeous. We stayed for about an hour and had a chance to see some of the iceberg break away and float down...More

We opted for the boat trip when we did this excursion. It was worth booking to travel between the icebergs and you may see seals whilst you are there. I didn't see where the beaches were in relation to the lagoon so am... More

Sure, do it on your own. Go to the beach on the other side of the road - beautiful white pieces of ice laying on the black beach sand.
