Glacial lagoon Boat tour. Boat tours on the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon are offered during the summer, every day from 9 am to 5 pm. The boats are amphibian with capacity for 25 passengers, duration about 45 minutes. There are seals in the lagoon and several types of fish and rich bird life in the area. The boats are operated from the main ring road no. 1 and these tours can be easily fitted into tours passing by and are highly recommended.
Tours on Zodiac boats is a great addition to the boat tours on the Lagoon.
Glacier kayaking is the new option for adventures travellers.
Glacier kayaking is the ultimate way to experience the magnificence of the world famous Vatnajökull National Park. Join us in an unforgettable trip and enjoy unbeatable panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers reflected upon the mirror-like water of the Heinaberg Lagoon. In the tour we also do a short glacier walk to get all the great views that Heinabergsglacier lagoon and surroundings has to offer.
At the stunning lagoon of Heinabergsjökull, one of the tongues of the Vatnajökull Glacier, you can become part of the environment, paddle beneath towering glaciated mountains and view the majestic glaciers and summit of the mighty Vatnajökull National Park.
Leave the crowds behind and explore the nooks and crannies of the glacier lakes, getting up close and personal with a variety of wildlife and icebergs. Heinabergslón is “out of the beaten path”, so no other traffic on the water.
The trip is fully guided by guides with a vast knowledge of the area, its history, hidden top spots – and of course kayaking. The Glacier Kayak Adventure suits kayakers with no paddling experience to experienced paddlers. Our Kayaks are SIT-ON-TOP boats, very stable and should be suitable for people who are new to kayaking.
You can choose between single person kayak or two person kayak, children age 12-16 always ride with adult person age 17+ in two person kayak.
We are the only glacier kayaking company in Iceland and aim to provide you with the best possible outdoor experience naturally!
