Black sand beaches, glacial lagoons and a magnificent scenery

More information

Experience Iceland like you never did before!

Join our Super jeep tour and drive with us on the black sand beaches. We will see the ruins of our first local airport and the lighthouse Hvanneyjarviti.

You get to see one of Iceland’s toughest entrance to Höfn harbour, where we can see seals spying on us while we look at the amazing view of the mountains all around us.

Finally we travel to a mesmerizing Glacial lagoon that lies beneath Fláajökull or Heinabergsjökull. There is a big herd of reindeer that we are often so lucky to see on our way to the lagoon.

An experienced driver-guide shares a wealth of fascinating information about our airport, the harbour entrance, glaciers, icefields and their impact on our environment during the tour.

Glacier Journey offers day tours as well as evening tours. For your tailor made once in a lifetime experience, we are happy to host a private tour for you our your group. For more information, please send us an email at
