Glimmering Icebergs of Jökulsárlón
Enjoy unforgettable scenery at the foot of Vatnajökull glacier: floating and glimmering icebergs in the lagoon on their way to the sea, arctic terns in the sky, black sands on the beach and the roaring sea only a short walking distance away. Discover the landscape which impressed even James Bond.
- Journey across a landscape of striking contrasts
- Getting up close to picturesque waterfalls
- Spectacular scenery of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon
- Views of Europe’s largest ice cap, Vatnajökull glacier
Get a front-row seat to the glacial lagoon as you sail among the gigantic icebergs and take in the power and the peace of this magnificent natural phenomenon.
The lake is a result of Breiðarmerkurjökull glacier slowly retreating, leaving in its wake the lagoon and the oddly-shaped icebergs of various sizes. En route to the lagoon, you will see some of Iceland’s most magnificent scenery, including the tallest mountain in Iceland, Hvannadalshnjúkur, and the sprawling black sand desert between Skaftafell National Park and the lagoon itself.
