Ice on the Ice Lagoon
Visitors at a cloudy Jökulsarlon on a weekend break. One of the best viewpoints is up on the hill. It is an easy hill to climb unless it is icy. The hill overs views over the glacier ice that floats on the lagoon at Jökulsarlon. It dramatically changes the perspective compared to the ground level views. This vantage point works better if there is a lot of ice on Jökulsarlon.

Did you know this about glaciers?
Glaciers are massive pieces of ice that ‘flow’ like slow rivers. They evolve over hundreds of years where snow compacts & turns into ice.
Jökulsárlón and Vatnjökull
It is possible to do a day tour along Iceland’s beautiful south coast to the glacier lagoon at Jökulsarlon and back. These tours takes you on a super trip along the entire south coast of Iceland. Fantastic waterfalls, huge glaciers and an amazing glacial lagoon await the adventurous tourist. Doing this in a single day is an immense challenge for both driver and passengers. It becomes a very long day, but we never had any complaints.
