Fjallsárlón is known in Iceland as the forgotten little brother of the larger Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Travellers often overlook it but not for its lack of beauty. Here, you can truly immerse yourself in Iceland’s fantastic nature while avoiding the crowds.
On a boat tour on Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon, you’ll sail amongst giant icebergs, accompanied by a professional guide, in a Zodiac boat. A Zodiac is a type of Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) built to maintain a smooth ride, even in rough waters. It also has high manoeuvrability so that you can get close to the bergs. In addition, it seats only ten people, allowing for a more personal and intimate experience.
You’ll begin this tour by Fjallsárlón lagoon, where a local professional guide will greet you, go over the safety features, and answer any questions you may have. Then, you’ll get fitted in warm floating jackets and life vests before walking to the lagoon.
Once you are comfortable in the boat, it is time to embark on an adventure on the water. The guide will sail across the lagoon, zigzagging between giant icebergs that have broken off a nearby glacier. They will explain the colours and history of the icebergs and glaciers and manoeuvre the raft so that you can take fantastic photos of this frozen wonder.
