Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon on Iceland’s South Coast

By Viator, November 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Jokulsarlon, a glacial lagoon in the south of Iceland, is one of the country’s many spectacular natural wonders. A glacier water melt, it fills the lagoon with sparkling blue water and chunks of floating ice. Since the 1970s, it’s been growing and now covers an area of about seven square-miles.

Fish, seals and birds are the main wildlife attractions at the lagoon, though its other-worldly landscape is a draw on its own. Tours visit the lagoon all year round, and visitors can hike or snowmobile on the nearby glacier or take a boat ride through the lagoon.
