We offer Zodiac Boat Tours on the majestic Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Fjallsárlón is an isolated glacial lagoon in the realm of Vatnajökull. 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!
The season for 2015 is over so we are no longer operating. We will be back in May 2016!

I felt like I was on a travel show!
Our guides know the area inside out, both the dramatic changes that have taken place in the landscape over the years as well as the history of the local population. The team consists of two local guys that grew up in the area and one guy from the city who wanted nothing more than breathing the fresh air in the countryside!
Steinþór is from Hof in Öræfi. He has hiked the district's rugged mountains and herded sheep since childhood. He's also very fond of the Icelandic horse and has been involved with breeding for many years. Steinþór is a lawyer but the office simply doesn't compare well with Fjallsárlón!
Kári is a police officer and a lawyer but during the summer he likes to sail his boat and enjoy the unique natural beauty at Fjallsárlón! Kári is an active guy who likes sports of all kinds. When he's not on the water you might see him playing football, running, cycling, lifting weights or chasing bad guys!
Bjarni lives at Hof in Öræfi and knows the area well. He's a carpenter but has also been working in the tourist indurstry for the last decade. Bjarni likes mountaineering and glacier trekking and he's a member of the local rescue team. Fjallsárlón is like home to Bjarni!
The best way to tour a glacial lagoon in Iceland!
