What to expect

The morning of your tour starts with a pick up from your hotel in Höfn. From there you will head to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a large glacial lake on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park. The lagoon is filled with some enormous icebergs, moving with the waves towards the river mouth. Listen to the calming crackling sound they give as they float around.

After taking in all the views, a monster truck will bring you to the foot of the largest glacier in Europe. Here you will enjoy a glacier hike to explore this beautiful natural phenomenon together with your guide.

The next stop is Diamond Beach, located just beside Jökulsárlón. This endless stretch of black sand is littered with sparking ice pieces and the best way to end your tour. You will be dropped back off at your hotel or guesthouse in Höfn.
