Above the Fjallsarlon lagoon sits Europe’s second largest volcano Öræfi. The caldera can’t be seen because the top of the mountain is quite flat. This land mass includes Hvannadalshnjúkur, the highest peak in Iceland, which can be seen from the Skaftafell side. The glacier has to come down some steep slopes before it reaches the lagoon. There are a few rivers that take the melt water to the ocean.
Fjalsárlón has a few tracks leading into it from the #1 ring road. The main access track has a tiny red sign post and in the Summer you will see the Zodiac Tours sign post.
This Location can be the windiest place in Iceland (I mean turn your car over), but if it is still, it has some of the best ice reflections.
The location works very well in both Winter and Summer. It has been used as a “Game of Thrones” film set – North of the Wall.
The Location works well for Northern Lights, if you can find it in the dark.
