This was an amazing experience. We drove out from Vik rather than do a day tour from Reykjavik. Our pilot/guide was Thor who clearly loves his job! Be sure to stop just short of the lagoon at one of the pull outs and walk up...More

Drove 4 hours to the area and then called company to ask them where they were located exactly. They then told me they canceled trip due to flooding issues but all the other tours seemed to be working. Wish they had called us sooner.

Get up close and person with the glacier, and seals if you're lucky! This boat tour takes you around the lagoon with plenty of stops along the way for close up photos of everything.

It is possible that the camera could get wet as the boat travels quickly. But if you are sensible and only take photographs when the boat is stationary or travelling slowly there should be no problem.
