Djùpivogur Things to Do
After you have done your snomobiling...while driving south..you will come to the lagoon where you will see a lot of iceblocks floating. There are boat rides here every 2 hours which you can take to go around the lagoon..unfortunately when we reached, the last boat had finished its tour and we were staying 1.5 hours away from there on the south so, it didnt make any sense for us to come back.
As there is no town in VT called Jökulsárlón, I am creating this tip in Djupivogur. This is the glacier entrance to Iceland and you can see about 3000 sq km of glaciers which covers 1/8th of iceland. While on the way to Djupivogur to Jökulsárlón, on the right side you will see lot of cars parked to go to the glaciers. You can park here if you dont have a 4 wheel drive and hitch a ride to the top with the tour fellows. There is only 1 tour company there on top with snomobiles and cars. You can either go on snomobiles or take a 4 wheel drive on the glaciers depending on what you are intending doing. Snomobiling was good fun and a great way to experience the glaciers. They will drop you after 2 hours literally...if you go with them or you can drive upto the glaciers if you have your own 4 wheel drive..but mind you it is a very steep drive and very dangerous as well.
