We will then proceed to Jokulsarlon, Iceland’s most famous glacier lagoon which presents an amazing scene, seeing broken icebergs from the glacier, some of which are several stories high, drifting out to the sea and washed up on the nearby shore. We will then take the Amphibian boat tour (included), which is an unforgettable experience, as you will go round and very close to the huge icebergs. If lucky, might also be able to see some seals.
