About the tour

We take you back in time to a glacier that was formed during Viking times. Surrounded by a stunning landscape filled with lagoons, icebergs, and diamond beaches, this is a place you definitely don't want to miss! The country's Diamond Beach and Glacier Lagoon are breath-taking places to visit. The snow that fell on the mountains here centuries ago formed Europe's biggest glacier Vatnajökull. Over time, the glacier eventually slid down towards a lagoon, affected by rising and falling ocean tides. When you catch the first sight of Diamond Beach, it might seem straight out of a postcard. You'll see stunning contrasts between blue ice, white snow, and mesmerizing black sand. If you're lucky, you might just spot seals swimming in the lagoon!

I like that Albert took his time so I could really soak in the view. It made me feel I was actually there in person.
