My husband was hesitant to do this, as he's not a big fan of zodiac tours. But after reading reviews we booked this. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Iceland. The lagoon is full of tourists but not to be missed. And the zodiac tour was much better than the duck boats. It... More

If you have ever wanted to get close to glaciers, touch them, ride between them, then a kodiak tour is the way to go. These boats are fast and stable, small enough to get right next to the glaciers. You travel with a small group of people, allowing you to talk to the guides and get the most of your... More

This is great tour to be able to get "up and close" to the icebergs in the lagoon. Great scenery and an easy walk over to the Ice Beach.

The Zodiac boat tour was fantastic! It's smaller than the other boats, and allows you to get much closer to the glacier. We even got to see a seal laying on ice up close!

This is a glacial lake filled with a huge number of icebergs, the remnants of calvings off the Breidamerkurjokull glacier (a tongue of the Vatnajokull ice cap). From the shore just off Highway 1 you can view and photograph the icebergs as they fill the lake and float by on their journey to the Atlantic ocean. Across the highway you... More

We did the duck boat tour. It's brief - less than an hour - but the scenery is truly stunning and the photo ops are incredible. Even if you book ahead, boarding is first come, first served, so if you'd like the first trip of the day, arrive 30 minutes in advance.

See the glacier ice very close and drive with a duck boat (!!)! The crew gives some interesting Info about the glacier lagoon and gives you ice to touch and lick. Not very cheap but totally a must do!

My friends and I LOVED the Glacier Lagoon . Spend the extra money and buy the Zodiac tickets. I'm sure the amphibian boats are a great experience as well, but the Zodiac takes you all around the Lagoon and closer to the glacier. Be warned, on the Zodiac tour you have to wear a floatation suit because you're riding in... More

This was just simply AMAZING. I have always wanted to see icebergs up close, those really blue ones and this didn't disappoint. You can book the amphibian boat which cruises around the base of the lagoon or the zodiac (small speed boat) which goes right up to the foot of the glacier, about 8km away from shore. I'd recommend the... More
