Visiting Iceland Diamond Beach And Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon In Iceland
Shops Near The Site and Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon Tours
There is also only one small cafe on site, which also closes by 7pm so be sure to bring a flash with some warm tea or coffee and the temperature drops without warning.
Our visit was self-guided as we hired a campervan in Reykjavik but if you are not renting a car while in Iceland, you can check out tours with Get Your Guide as well as Viator as well as the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon tour boats available on site. These range from glacier walking to Golden Circle day tours.
Aside from exploring much of the area on foot, you also have access to Glacier Lagoon cruise that take you around the lagoon to get close to the icebergs. You also spot a couple of seals in the distance. You are free to roam the surrounding area at your own leisure as there are no gates or entrance fees other than paying for the boat ride.
How To Get From Reykjavik to Jokulsarlon | How far is Jokulsarlon from Reykjavik?
The drive from Reykjavik to Jokulsarlon would take you at least 4.5 hours without stops. Bear in mind that you have the Geysir, Seljalalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Seljalandsfoss, Gullfoss and many others all before you get to the lagoon so doing that drive and back takes some effort. It’s best to break it up in two days. We explored the ring road and slept at a camping site in our campervan at Seljalandsfoss.
What To Pack For A visit To Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon
I will be sharing a detailed post on what to pack for a trip to Iceland but as you can see this is what summer tends to look like in this part of Iceland on some occasion. So dress warm and wear suitable shoes.
