The Glacier Lagoon is one of the most popular tourist destinations, and no wonder. The glacier and its surrounding offer every changing, spectacular scenery.

Massive Icebergs, breaking off the outlet glacier, float inside the lagoon, eventually making their way to the ocean.  The black beach, known as Diamond Beach" for its fragmented icebergs scattered all over forms part of the beautiful scenery, showcasing melting icebergs.

The lagoon flows through a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean, leaving chunks of ice on the back beach.  Huge blocks of icebergs float around in the lagoon. Ice chunks on the black beach look like diamonds, which give the beach its name, so take a walk on the diamond beach along the Glacier Lagoon.  

Very often the lagoon host hundreds of seals.  Exciting boat or Zodiac trips can be offered if requested.

The lagoon is also famous for its settings in two James Bond films, one being "A View to Kill" (1984) and “Die Another Day” (2002), was the other. The location has also been used in other films such as Tomb Raider and Beowulf.

During the long drive along Iceland's southern coast to the Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach, we'll make just one additional stop at your choice. Options include iconic landmarks like Skógafoss or Seljalandsfoss waterfalls or at the black sand beach (Reynisdrangar), near Vik í Mýrdal.

Covering a distance of 380 km from Reykjavik Capital, this tour is our longest lasting 13 to 15 hours. The journey however, is undoubtedly worth the drive.
