We (my husband and I and another couple) booked the Adventure Tour and couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. We were provided with warm flotation suits and were on a zodiac with about 6 other people. Our driver was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and took us...More

Unfortunately I was quite disappointed with the amphibian boat tour. In the price of the ticket you get a not even a half hour tour (surely not 40 minutes as stated on the site) on a crowded amphibian. It is very loud and distracts the...More

I did the zodiac tour today in beautiful sunshine! We were only five people on the boat which was really nice. Went quite close to the glacier and learnt some interesting things. We were also shown how much the glacier receded over the past decades,...More

Love, love, love the tour. A must do when you are in Iceland. They provide you with the outfit and life jacket and though you are in the middle of the lagoon surrounded with ice on a zodiac boat...you will feel safe and the view...More

We really enjoyed the small zodiac tour. It's nice to be on a boat that seats 6. The little zodiac floats very close to the icebergs and we can reach off the boat and grab ice from some of the smaller floating ice bits. Our...More

Although some icebergs can be seen from the shore at the car park (right by the meeting point), the much larger icebergs are inside the Lagoon and can't be viewed from the shore. After being given protective suits and life jackets we were driven to...More

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...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...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!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Can I bring a digital SLR camera or a smaller point and shoot camera on a zodiac boat tour or will they get wet and damaged? A waterproof case for the camera is expensive and I did not want to buy another camera. Thank you.

It is possible that the camera could get wet as the boat travels quickly. But if you are sensible and only take photographs when the boat is stationary or travelling slowly there should be no problem.

I want to join the Jokulsarlon zodiac boat tour in May, but the website claim no trip found.

You can book a boat ride from the 15th May onward but only if it's on the Amphibian which doesn't get so close to the glacier. The Zodiac tours start on 1June but you have all the info if you go to the site of the icelagoon.
