Arriving to the lagoon is like stepping into a dreamlike world that offers spectacular sights. Iceland's tallest volcano, the Öræfajökull glacier, looms above the lagoon and reaches down to the water where icebergs break off into the lake and drift serenely around before melting. During the tour we will take you on a journey through time and tell you how the local farmers had to struggle with the forces of nature in their daily lives. We invite you to experience the breathtaking natural scenery as we take you on a guided boat tour along floating icebergs and giant glaciers! Iceberg lagoon specializes in guided boat tours on the majestic glacial lagoon, Fjallsárlón. The lagoon is located at the roots of the national park of Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. On the lagoon, you can see icebergs that calved from the edge of the glacier and are now floating around. Operating on Zodiac boats gives the advantage to go closer to the icebergs, also sailors always pick the most interesting route to the edge of the glacier, based on situation and conditions of the lagoon. While passengers will be taking in all the beauty of the lagoon, the guide will explain the formation of the  glacier, the wild nature around and how people used to live in the isolated and harsh environment.
