The lagoon is a great spot, full of icebergs and goos for pictures. Avoid the uninspiring and expensive amphibious boat trip - especially if it's raining as there's absolutely no cover at all on the boat. Also make sure that you cross over the road...More

The glacier is incredible, meeting a still lagoon where large pieces of ice break up and flow to the ocean. We saw sea otters playing in the waters and walked out to the mouth of the lagoon to see the broken up ice flow into...More

I read the reviews of both glacier lagoon companies (which are very close to each other) then we stopped at this one. In mid-May, there were a number of people looking at the stunning view, but there was plenty of space on the shore to...More

Black volcanic sand beach, floating icebergs, cold winds, and out of this world views - this is what you will experience if you venture on a 5+ hours drive from Reykjavik. This is not a daily trip excursion, it takes time to get there, and...More

Absolutely worth the 4.5 hour drive from Reykjavik. The sound of the ice the way it glistens when the sun comes up will leave you in awe. Take the drive

Such a beautiful and unique place to stop. Take the boat tour and ride around glaciers. Truly an amazing stop!

This was my favourite place in Iceland. We did a long walk around the lagoon and beach and then took a zodiac boat ride to the glacier. A great day

Never seen anything like it. Huge icebergs floating around a beautiful lagoon against a backdrop of snow capped mountains. We had beautiful weather, so after our boat trip around the lagoon and watching a giant iceberg break up and roll, we sunbathed on a black...More

It really depends on your onward travel plans but allow at least an hour, can't say about the boat tours since we didn't take one
Hi! I am thinking of going for a day from Selfoss, then spending the night in Vik. Do you recommend doing some kind of tour when you get there or is it something to just explore on your own? I have 2 kids 11 & 13. Thank you!!
