Although this lagoon is a long drive from just about anywhere, it is well worth it! It was one of the highlights of our vacation. The glacier lagoon is much larger than I envisioned with more icebergs floating along than I expected as well. They...More

Not much I can add to all the reviews . Just awesome. Stop at the other turn offs to get different view. Walk farther down the beach to see the glacier ice being washed up on the beach.

Beautiful and ghostly procession of luminous blue icebergs in the glacial river Lagoon which apparently is the deepest lake in Iceland. Stunning view of the icebergs of the lake.

Even though it was raining heavily when we visited Jökulsárlón it was totally worth getting a little wet. We didnt do any tours just walked around the beach for some minutes. The colours and the weirdly shaped pieces of ice are absolutely incredible!
