Highlights from the Place

Jökulsárlón Lagoon

Jökulsárlón is a large glacial lagoon located in South East Iceland which covers approximately 18 square kilometres. It is filled with icebergs and formed by melting water and ice from the Breiðarmerkujökull glacier (which is a part of the Vatnajökull icecap). Water flows out of the lagoon into the Atlantic Ocean through a short waterway, bridged by Road 1. Today Jökulsárlón is part of the Vatnajökull National Park.

Jökulsárlón is one of the most visited tourist attraction in Iceland, easily accessible by the road 1.

During the summer time, boat trips are offered on the  glacial lagoon, sailing among the huge icebergs.
