Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Enjoy the slow & stunning drift of azure icebergs out to sea

Film buffs will recognise Jökulsárlón from such blockbusters as Tomb Raider, Batman Begins, and 2 James Bond films: A View to a Kill and Die Another Day. It’s not surprising why famous directors would choose this amazing location as a backdrop!

This extremely picturesque glacial lagoon at the southern edge of the Vatnajökull glacier is regarded as one of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders. Huge chunks of ice regularly calve off the glacier and make their way to the sea via the glacier lagoon.

The view from the shore is unforgettable, but boat tours onto the lagoon to navigate the maze of icebergs are also available to get up close and personal with the azure ice. Boat tours are operated daily from May 15th to September 15th.

From land or on the water, you’re also likely to spot playful seals swimming in the chilly waters, much to the enjoyment of onlookers.

The water in Jökulsárlón is frigid and the ice bergs flip and roll on their own without warning, so please do not wade into the water or attempt to climb on the ice.
