Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is a most fascinating stop in Iceland. It was described quite well in Lonely Planet as “a ghostly procession of luminous blue icebergs”. To me, this was absolutely breathtaking, We got to visit the site in a cold winters day, clear blue skies, The white Vatnajökull’s as a backdrop, the slow, and silently bobbing of the icebergs in the lagoon and the occasional surprise of a violent loud crack follow of either a roll of an iceberg or parts breaking off.
This lagoon was created by glacier melt a mere 50 years ago. It’s growing rapidly as the polar ice cap melts and these icebergs in the water are from the glacier in the distance. They sit in the lagoon until they melt enough to float out to sea.
