Winter Hovercraft Tour Glacier Lagoon

Are you visiting Iceland in winter and want to experience the Glacier Lagoon and its icebergs in a unique way? Then this exciting hovercraft tour in the impressive surroundings of Vatnajökull National Park is the tour for you.
The Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is considered to be one of the natural wonders of Iceland and during this tour, you will be able to safely and smoothly sail among icebergs to see this impressive landscape up close.
Located in southeast Iceland alongside the famous ring road no. 1, the glacier lagoon is the deepest lake in the country filled with many large icebergs. This is the only boat tour in the lagoon, available during the winter season and this is the first and only hovercraft iceberg ride available in Iceland.

Starting from the meeting point your guide takes you on a jeep to the glacier area. You drive for about 15 minutes to the hovercraft. The hovercraft ride itself takes about 45-60 minutes and the whole experience approximately 1,5-2 hours including the drive from and to the meeting location.

You will climb aboard the fully-enclosed hovercraft and your well-experienced guide will explain how the craft works. After a short safety briefing, the tour can begin and you are ready for the adventure!

Come and enjoy the smooth and safe sailing around the icebergs on the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon with experienced and professional local pilots. Nowhere else in Iceland is this experience available!
