Jokulsarlon lagoon boat trip

by billywinston Online Now Feb 6, 2013 at 7:56 AM

Hi
Can anyone tell me if it's possible to do a boat trip in April. I've looked at various websites, some of which say that these boat trips don't start until May. I will be there 18th or 19th April. I've emailed 1 company but they have yet to get back to me. If the boat trips do run in April is it possible to just turn up or have I got to pre-book? I'd prefer not to pre-book so that I don't have to work to set time scales. Also would I see far more on the boat than I would just walking around the lagoon and is the boat trip worth the cost?

Thank you

    I should add that although you wont be able to do a boat tour you will probably have the area to yourself and, even from shore you will still be close to the ice bergs. There is a little cafe/shop that is there will be open.

    For anyone else reading this I have since found out that there may be a boat. I asked someone who had left a review on Trip Adviser. He went on a boat trip in April 2012. He said that it wasn't the usual boat but a zodiac boat (like a small motorboat) and that the trip was worth doing.
