Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Glacier Hiking (from Djúpivogur)

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Glacier Hiking (from Djúpivogur)

We will pick you up from the port in Djúpivogur. Then, we will head to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Jökulsárlón is a large glacial lake on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park. Floating on the lagoon are enormous icebergs, moving with the waves towards the river mouth. The white and blue icebergs give off a calming crackling sound as they float around in the lagoon. You will have plenty of time to take in the views from shore. From here, you will hop onto a monster truck which will bring you to the foot of the largest glacier in Europe for your glacier hiking (or Blue Ice Cave Exploration). Blue Ice Cave is a rare and hugely popular part of winter in Iceland. This tour is for anyone who would like to explore the little-seen phenomenon of a naturally formed ice cave or anyone who wants to feel the frosty air on their cheeks as they enjoy the wilderness of Iceland. As the day comes to an end, we will drop you off at the port in Djúpivogur.
