Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon

Recommendation by Lemi

From land shaped by fire, let us move on to land marked by ice. Marbled brown, milky white, and bright blue icebergs float across the clear blue waters of the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon. The body of water formed when a nearby glacier melted, creating an inlet of water that flows into the open ocean. Boat tours get up close to the jagged ice much like ships might on the polar ice caps, except all from the safety of southeastern Iceland. Visit Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon while the icebergs are still around. The beautiful lagoon faces an impending threat as the melting won’t stop, and the ice is disappearing swiftly. When the last one melts, Jökulsárlón will be just another pool—beautiful, but empty of its bobbing floats. Stay until darkness falls, The Northern Lights put on a show for all who come and admire the lagoon.
