Be prepared to get wet, even though they kit you out in flotation suits and life jackets the zodiacs go so fast that, especially on the back you get soaked. Tour lasts about 1 hour and you do get to see plenty of icebergs but...More

We had a lovely boat ride among ice floats. Crew was friendly, informative and respectful of the environment. So quiet on the water, made for great photo opportunities. I just wish it had been a longer ride.

This was a really fun and exciting experience. Guides were knowledgeable and shared so much information. It is a thrilling ride to the glacier (and cold) but well worth it. Very easy to find.

This was probably one of the best things we did in Iceland. I had found it on TA. We suited up in our thermal suits (which provided some cute pictures) and headed out in the boat. The icebergs Bd glacier were really breath taking. You...More

We booked the zodiac tour and loved every second of it! I was 18-19 weeks pregnant and it was totally enjoyable. The only thing is that it was super cold while whipping between icebergs. The lagoon is amazing and this is a must do. The...More

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.

You can book a boat ride from the 15th May onward but only if it's on the Amphibian which doesn't get so close to the glacier. The Zodiac tours start on 1June but you have all the info if you go to the site of the icelagoon.
