We were not able to participate in our scheduled boat tour as it was pouring rain that day. While refunds are not normally given due to weather, the manager honored a refund for us due to a medical condition that made being out in heavy...More
We were extremely happy to have taken this Boat Tour. Our Boat was manned by a very knowledgeable person Joao and he was answering our queries to our complete satisfaction.
He surely seemed genuinely worried of the effects of Global Warming, but refused to get...More
Did the amphibious boat, often called Duck tours, in the States. A little bit pricey but in line with high costs in Iceland. Very good English spoken by the guide. Went out into the Lagoon among all the calving icebergs. Bumped into a few slowly....More
We enjoyed a tour with this company. The whole crew was great with all the informations and the equipment, they did not waste time at all.
Our guide Joao was funny and great in sharing infos about the glacier, the conditions, vulcanos and iceland in...More
The zodiac boat tour is ok with not many iceberg and did not get close to the glacier which I thought we would get closer with Zodiac boat. The boat guide was ok but the girl at the reception is not personal at all. Insisted...More
Like others said here: not so crowdy, a size smaller the icebergs but a great sensation; and above all a great gide who explained ice and even the volcano nearby; Since you all come from the direction of Reykjavik this is the way to do...More

We were lucky enough to arrive before weather got worse so had photos of a whole lagoon with amazing view of the glacier!.
They provide big jackets and do the safety brief. Boats are not too big, staff is very friendly and talk about interesting...More
The location was a few kilometers past the larger glacier lagoon. The guide was very informative and humorous. This lagoon is much larger than it looks. The waters are milky as it has only 1 direction of flow into the ocean. The other tour company...More
We thoroughly enjoyed the 1 hour long experience. You start with suiting up (over your regular clothing) in a flotation suit and flotation vest before boarding a bus that take you up to where the zodiac boat departs. Once in the zodiac, a full hour...More

This might depend in part on which date in October you plan to go there. On 1st October this year, sunset in that locale is around 18:33. By 31st October it will be 16:50. Twilight though tends to last longer this far north, compared to more southern locations (as far as 19:20 on 1st October and 17:43 on 31st October). Cloud cover though would lead to the light fading away much sooner, and cloud cover tends to be something of a norm in Iceland. If you're concerned about the amount of light to see things then indeed go earlier rather than later, but if the weather's on your side then the 'quality' of light can in many ways get nicer, the closer the sun is to the horizon. The timeanddate Web site is useful for pinpointing specific sunset times. The closest point to Fjallsárlón it will show data for is Jökulsárlón, but that's just a short hop down the road so the same data should apply.
