    When you visit a country, you pretty much always find one thing you absolutely love about the country. Whether it’s the food, the people or a certain excursion. For me, Exploring the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in Iceland was the one for me. And the one I fell in love with most. This is my post and guide on exploring Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon which is one of the beauties in Iceland.

    [one_third padding=”100px 0 0 0″]The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is my favourite excursion in Iceland. It is almost like you are in another world just taking in the ice cold winds and out of this world landscape of icebergs and mini glaciers. The aqua blue colouring and the dark black of old volcanic ash colour the icebergs that spread across this lagoon to create something spectacular. I have not seen anything like this in my life which is why it has become my favourite thing to see in Iceland. Photos really don’t do it justice and I highly recommend everyone to go and see it when they visit Iceland – way over the Blue Lagoon!


    The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is a 4 hour drive from Reykjavik which is better to reach if you drive along the Ring Road for the day and work your way towards the lagoon. Start at the famous waterfalls and work your way to it. You can read about my journey along the Ring Road here. It’s a long journey but it is totally worth it to see this lagoon.

    The icebergs in the lagoon have made their way from the surrounding glacier Breiðamerkurjökull. Which is part of the larger, Vatnajökull Glacier. The Glacier Lagoon flows through a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean. Leaving chunks of ice on a black sand beach nearby which is called Diamond Beach. In the winter, the fish-filled lagoon hosts hundreds of seals as they are filled with many types of fish. Including Atlantic herring, Atlantic salmon and Brown trout.


    With global warming and lots people around the world neglecting our planet with rubbish. This glacier lagoon, glaciers and the icebergs are suffering and at risk of all melting. You should read my post We Need To Save The Arctic And The Icebergs for more information on how we can save them. Not only are the glacier lagoons and icebergs an amazing thing to see but also massive for the wildlife. And will seriously impact them and their food chain for survival once it disappears.
