Jökulsárlón is Iceland’s most famous glacier lagoon. Conveniently located in the southeast by Route 1, about halfway between the Skaftafell Nature Reserve and Höfn, it is a popular stop for those travelling along the South Coast or around the circular ring road of the country.
It stands out, however, due to the fact that it also fills with icebergs breaking from the glacier, some of which tower several stories high.
These icebergs, other than their scale, are notable for their colouration. Although they are, as expected, largely white, most are also dyed electric blue in part, with black streaks of ash from eruptions centuries past.
When the icebergs finally make it across the lagoon, they either drift out to sea or wash up on the nearby shore. Because of the way they glisten against the black sands of Breiðamerkursandur, this area has been nicknamed ‘the Diamond Beach’.
In spite of being a rather recent formation, Jökulsárlón is the deepest lake in the country, with depths reaching 248 metres. With a surface area of 18 square kilometres, it is also growing to be one of the largest.
Jökulsárlón has not been around since Iceland’s settlement; it only formed around 1935. This was due to rapidly rising temperatures in the country from the turn of the twentieth century; since 1920, Breiðamerkurjökull has been shrinking at a dramatic rate, and the lagoon has begun to fill its space.
Today, the expansion of Jökulsárlón is accelerating. As recently as 1975, it was just 8 square kilometres, and now that size has more than doubled.
In the relatively near future, it is expected that the lagoon will continue to grow until it becomes a large, deep fjord.
Though a dark omen for Iceland’s glaciers and ice caps in general, the retreat of Breiðamerkurjökull has resulted in an incredibly beautiful, if temporary, site. This has not been overlooked by Hollywood.
Jökulsárlón has been featured in the James Bond films A View to Kill in 1985 and Die Another Day in 2002, 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and 2005’s Batman Begins.
In 2017, Jökulsárlón was enveloped into the Vatnajökull National Park, thus it is now fully protected by Icelandic law.
Because of the wealth of herring and capelin that the tides bring into the lagoon, Jökulsárlón is somewhat of a hot-spot for Iceland’s wildlife.
In summer, it is a nesting site for Arctic Terns; stay well away from this area, as these birds are notorious for the fierceness with which they protect their eggs, dive-bombing the heads of any they see as a threat. Skuas also nest on the lake’s shores in this season.
Seals can be reliably spotted here throughout the year, swimming amongst or else hauling out on the icebergs. Jökulsárlón provides them with a safe haven to rest and socialise, especially considering the waters of southeast Iceland are renowned for their population of orcas.
Vatnajökull is the largest ice cap in Iceland and the third largest glacier in Europe, covering 8% of the island's landmass. Vatnajökull Glacier can be found in the south west of Iceland and is a popular spot for glacier hiking and ice caving tours.
Facts about Vatnajökull
- Surface: 8,100 km2
- Average thickness: 400 - 600 m
- Maximum thickness: 1,000 m
- Height: 1,400 - 1,800 m
- Highest peak: 2,200 m (Hvannadalshnjúkur)
Information about Vatnajökull
Vatnajökull Glacier belongs to the greater Vatnajökull National Park, which encompasses the former national parks Skaftafell, in the southwest, and Jökulsárgljúfur, in the north. Vatnajökull's highest summit is Hvannadalshnjúkur which rests on top of a stratovolcano known as Öræfajökull.
Underneath the glacier rests some of the most active volcanoes in the country, the most notable being Grímsvötn, Öræfajökull and Bárðabunga. Volcanic activity in the region has occurred on and off throughout the centuries, and many geologists believe that such a period is overdue for immediate future. If their calculations are correct, it would mean significant volcanic activity for Vatnajökull over the scope of the next half century.
The glacier boasts of over 30 outlet glaciers, which are channels of ice that flow out of ice caps but remain constrained on the sides of the valley. The major outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull include Dyngjujökull in the north, Breiðamerkurjökull and Skeiðarárjökull to the south. To the west, one can find the outlet glaciers Síðujökull, Skaftárjökull and Tungnaárjökull.
Glaciers are in constant motion underneath their weight; as they form over the centuries, the accession of snow exceeds its melting, creating a constant "push" on the ice cap. Each year, due to the melting ice water, new ice caves form that disappear come spring.

Numerous rivers run out of Vatnajökull, making up some of the greatest glacial rivers in Iceland:
- Tungnaá (west)
- Köldukvísl (west)
- Þjórsá (west)
- Jökulsá á Fjöllum (north)
- Skjálfandafljót (north)
- Jökulsá á Brú (north east)
- Jökulsá í Fljótsdal (north east)
- Jökulsá í Lóni (south)
- Hornafjarðarfljót (south)
- Jökulsá á Breiðamerkursandi (south)
- Skeiðará (south)
- Núpsvötn (south)
- Hverfisfljót (south)
- Skaftá (south)
Vatnajökull National Park
Vatnajökull National Park, in its current state, was established in June 2008. The park now covers an area of 14.141 km2, making it the second largest national park in Europe. Vatnajökull National Park has 14% coverage over the whole island of Iceland.
Rivers divide the highland plateau to the north of the park; an area that sees massive glacial flows in the summertime. The volcanic table mountain Herðubreið towers over this particular region, along with volcanoes Askja, Snæfell and Kverkfjöll.
The canyon Jökulsárgljúfur was carved out by glacial floods centuries ago. At the upper end of the canyon, you'll find Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe. Further north, the horseshoe-shaped canyon Ásbyrgi is believed to have formed when Óðinn's horse, Sleipnir, stepped his foot down from the heavens.
East around Snæfell, one can find wetlands and ranges, home to roaming herds of wild reindeer and abundant birdlife. Steep mountain ridges make up the south side of Vatnajökull, where outlet glaciers crawl in between the ridges onto the lowlands. The sandy plains of Skeiðarársandur also lie to the south as they reach out to sea. The glacial river Skeiðará runs through this vast desert.
One of Iceland's most visited landmarks is the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, which sits at the head of outlet glacier Breiðamerkurjökull. There, large icebergs that have broken off the glacier gather to float in the lake before ending up in the Atlantic Ocean, or on the nearby Diamond Beach.

The Future of Vatnajökull
The volume of Vatnajökull reached its peak around 1930 but has since been in a steady process of decline. Because of rising levels of global temperature, approximately over the last 15 years, Vatnajökull has on average lost about a metre of its thickness annually.
If temperature levels continue to rise, the glacier could be all but gone nearing the end of the next century, leaving only small ice caps on top of the highest mountain summits.

Skogafoss is one of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls of the island with an astounding width of 25 meters and a drop of 60 meters.
This is one of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland for travellers to visit. It is located in South Iceland, not far from Skogar, which itself features a highly interesting regional museum. Due to the amount of spray the waterfall often produces a single or double rainbow on sunny days.
Seljalandsfoss in the river Seljalandsa in South Iceland is one of the most sought waterfalls in the country.
Seljalandsfoss has a narrow cascade but is one of Iceland's highest waterfalls, at 63 meters. The waterfall is highly picturesque and has the rare distinction that one can actually walk behind it.
Geysir is a famous hot spring in Haukadalur valley in South Iceland. Part of the ‘Golden Circle', Geysir gives its name to hot springs all over the world.
Though Geysir itself is hardly active anymore, the area features spectacular hot springs such as the powerful Strokkur, which spouts a vast amount of water every 10 minutes, around 15-20 meters into the air, Smidur and Litli-Strokkur.
North of Geysir are fumaroles, i.e. unlike the hot springs that emit hot water, only steam and gas emanate from these. You may be able to observe bright yellow stains at the fumaroles, this is native sulphur, which crystallizes from the steam. At the southern part of the geothermal area, called Thykkuhverir, you‘ll find various mud pots. Such mud pots are actually fumaroles that boil up through surface water/groundwater and may become steaming fumaroles during dry spells, rather than the usual boiling mud pots.
About 2 km from Geysir is an old preserved natural pool called Kúalaug. One can bathe in it and it has room for 3-5 people at a time, but care should be taken, as the area around the pool is very delicate. The temperature is 39-43°C, depending on how you are positioned in the pool. The water is slightly muddy, as the pool is built on soil, and the bottom is slippery due to algae, so caution is advised.
In Haukadalur there has also been tree planting in recent times and today the forest Haukadalsskógur is one of the largest in South Iceland. Aspen, various types of pine, and other plants have been tried out there and experiments and research continue. We also recommend visiting the tree museum, built in the memory of forester Gunnar Freysteinsson. There are good paths and roads in the forest and the wood is specially designed to accommodate wheelchairs.
Haukadalur has been a church site since ancient time. The current wooden church was last rebuilt in 1938 but the variety and appearance of the church dates back to 1842, making it one of the oldest of its kind in Iceland.
Haukadalur is indeed a historical place. It was settled during the age of settlement and scholar Ari “The Wise“ Thorgilsson grew up there. The first pastoral school in Iceland was also built there.
For accommodation, Hotel Gullfoss is about 7 km from the Geysir area, and closer still is the Hotel Geysir.
Skaftafell is a nature preserve in Oraefasveit. It used to be a national park of its own but joined the larger Vatnajokull National Park in 2008.
Skaftafell is notable for its rich flora, growing between sands and glaciers, and overall for its amazing and contrasting scenery. You can take short and easy trails to the waterfalls Svartifoss and Hundafoss, as well as Skaftafell glacier, with the mountain Kristinartindar and Morsardalur valley further off.
Skaftafell is also the perfect base camp for those seeking to climb Iceland’s highest peak, Hvannadalshnukur.
Vik in Myrdalur valley is the southernmost village on the Icelandic mainland, located 186 km from the capital Reykjavik.
Vik is important as a service centre for the inhabitants and visitors of the marvellous Reynisfjara beach.
Reynisfjara is widely considered one of the most beautiful beaches on earth (see for example Islands Magazine). This black pebble beach boasts an amazing cliff of regular basalt columns called Gardar, which resembles a rocky step pyramid and out in the sea are the spectaculary shaped basalt sea stacks Reynisdrangar. The area has rich birdlife, including puffins, fulmars and guillemots.
Kerið is a volcanic crater lake in Grímsnes in south Iceland. It is a popular stop when traveling the Golden Circle.
It is believed that Kerið was originally a cone volcano that erupted and and emptied its magma reserve. Once the magma was depleted, the weight of the cone collapsed into an empty magma chamber, later to be filled with water.
The Kerið caldera is composed of red volcanic rock and is around 55 m deep, 170 m wide and 270 m across. There is little vegetation in the steep-walled crater, save for one wall with a gentler slope which is covered with deep moss. This wall is fairly easy to descend.
The lake itself is fairly shallow and is striking in its beauty. Opaque and aquamarine, surrounded by the red crater walls, Kerið offers a great contrast of colours and a highly impressive scenery.
The acoustics of the crater are considered to be fairly good, and a number of concerts have been held inside Kerið. There is a small admission fee to visit Kerið, 400 ISK per person (as of 2017).
Reynisdrangar are rock formations situated near the shore of Reynisfjara beach by the coastal village Vík í Mýrdalur on the South Coast of Iceland.
The formations are large and impending sea cliffs, made up of the rock type basalt, that serve as a vital part of the area’s allure as they shoot dramatically out of the ocean under the looming cliffs of Mt. Reynisfjall.
- Visit Reynisfjara and Reynisdrangar on these South Coast Tours
The village of Vík only houses around 300 permanent inhabitants, but on a daily basis, travellers scouting the South Coast make their way there to visit what has been voted as one of the most beautiful non-tropical beaches in the world. The beach of Reynisfjara, however, can be highly dangerous if proper caution is not taken. As is evident from how the waves of the Atlantic Ocean crash upon Reynisdrangar, the currents here are strong, and sneak waves can easily carry anyone that’s standing too close out to sea. The beach is not for wading, but for admiring, and especially the mighty surf bursting on the base of these rocky cliffs.
There is an Icelandic folk tale that explains the origin of the pillars’ eerie appearance. According to legend, a couple of trolls were busy dragging a stranded three-masted ship to shore when the sunlight hit them and turned them into pillars of rock for all eternity. In fact, numerous rock formations in Iceland carry with them tales of trolls or elves, and one has only to look at them to fathom why.
Surroundings & Wildlife
An alternative view of the bewitching cliffs and their surrounding sea can be enjoyed by venturing up Mt. Reynisfjall, by a road to the west of the village. The mountain furthermore functions as a puffin colony every summer, from April to September, meaning guests can enjoy the view in good company. Other birds can be seen gliding around the cliffs such as Arctic terns, fulmars and seagulls.

Day 1 - The Golden Circle with Kerid Volcanic Crater Lake
After getting picked up from Reykjavík City in the morning, you will be whisked away to Iceland’s primary attractions belonging to the Golden Circle route.
First up is the historically and geographically fascinating valley of Þingvellir. This National Park was the site at which Vikings and chieftains of old would gather to declare the law and settle their bloodiest feuds. The park is also located on the continental divide of the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates, creating stunning and clearly visible cracks and fissures between two worlds.
Up next is a trip to Haukadalur geothermal valley, where the mighty geysers Geysir (the very namesake of the phenomenon) and Strokkur (still active and puts on a display every few minutes) call their home amongst bubbling hot pools.
Then, it is on to what granted the Golden Circle its name, the mighty waterfall Gullfoss, the Golden Waterfall, a dazzling display of unharnessed power plunging down two tiers into a deep gorge. The day concludes with a visit to the crater lake Kerið, where azure water contrasts with different shades of red inside a dormant volcano.
Come nightfall; your minibus will make its way to the start of the South Coast, where you’ll stay in a local accommodation close to the waterfall Seljalandsfoss.
Day 2 - South Coast, Waterfalls and Glacier Hike
Welcome to the South Coast. You’ll start by visiting the two greatest waterfalls of the area, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Both have a cascade of 60 metres, and their raw power is something incredible to behold.
You’ll also get to visit the lesser known, but equally alluring, waterfalls of Gljúfrabúi, Kvernufoss and Írafoss. After seeing no less than five waterfalls in one morning, there will be a lunch stop in a charming local village, where the scenery at hand includes the volcanic ice cap Eyjafjallajökull, that last erupted in 2010, infamously putting a halt to international air travels.
Another glacier looming over the area is Mýrdalsjökull, where you will embark on the adventure of hiking across one of its outlet glaciers, Sólheimajökull. There's no better way of grasping a glacier's power than by walking on its icy surface. Your experienced guide will provide you with all the equipment necessary, such as ice crampons and a helmet. The scenery from the top is out of this world, and the air incredibly crisp and restorative.
As you arrive back with both feet on the ground, your journey continues as the bus will take you to the coastal village Vík and its black pebble beach Reynisfjara. Mt. Reynisfjall towers over the beach, seasonal home to nesting puffins. The eerie sea stacks Reynisdrangar nest just offshore, steadfast against the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
Come nightfall; you will return to your South Coast accommodation to rest for the last day ahead.
Day 3 - The Jokulsarlon Glacier lagoon and Skaftafell National Park
On the third and final day, you will make a quick stop in the village of Vík, before heading further along the coastline, reaching the stunning Skaftafell Nature Reserve. The area is part of the greater Vatnajökull National Park, home to the largest ice cap in Europe, as well as countless scenic hiking trails and beautiful waterfalls.
After visiting the waterfall Foss á Síðu and enjoying lunch, your destination is set for Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This incredible site consists of large chunks of ice, broken off of Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier, that gather to float in still, azure waters.
Some of these icebergs wash up on shore, on a strip of black sand known as the Diamond Beach. A boat ride in the lagoon is included, where you will venture so close to the icebergs that you can almost touch them. Remember also to look out for the residents of the water, the adorable and curious seals.
After all of these icy adventures, it is time to head to the city lights of Reykjavík, where you can take in the sceneries en route one more time, with wonderful new memories to bring back with you. Book this adventure now for the ultimate Iceland journey.
Wonderful Trip. Very glad I took the 3 day package and went farther to the south, out into the countryside. Great accommodations in a lovely guest house for 2 nights with vegan food options as well as a kitchen for guests to cook for themselves. Very knowledgeable guides. I felt safe walking on the glacier with the partner tour company. I loved being in a smaller group with a more flexible schedule. NiceTravel was a great company to go with.
Hi, Many thanks to organisers. It was an interesting trip. Specifically first two days were full of activities starting at 9 am and finishing late at about 9 pm. The last day 3 was also nice but probably not that rich in activities. As we were passing by the Geothermal Exhibition on our way back, I would expect to go in and see how the alternative energy works. I assume this actually must be the main goal of Iceland - to share tgeir experience in alternative energy!
This was a three day highlight of great Icelandic scenery and experience. The first day was Circle Tour and most people on the bus got off after day one. We stayed and another couple joined us the next day. Our hotel was super! The restaurant at the hotel was also top notch with service and food quality. The next 2 days were busy with lots of waterfalls and glaciers. I highly recommend the glacier walk and lagoon on a boat experience. Our guide Robert was friendly and personable and informative. Excellent young man! This 3 day tour is the best for a short visit.
Nice tour, nice tour guide and driver! If you don't have too much time , highly recommend you get the tour , you will enjoy it !!
The first two days trip is amazing and our guide Lucia is very nice and humorous and will you tell you a lot about the local stories and knowledge about history and geography.But at the third day when wo went to the golden circle we changed a guide which makes me feel a little not satisfied because we have already had a good relationship and familiar with Lucia and she also leaded the tour to the golden circle and why we couldn't direct follow her...I think next time the intimacy and relationship shoud be more considered rather than some official arrangement.
We booked the three day tour with Nicetravel. The first day was the Golden Circle with guide Einar, around 17 people total. Despite the expected crowds, the tour was well organized though we felt a little rushed as some people had to make it to the Blue Lagoon by a certain time. The second and third days, we had a blast touring the South Coast/Jokulsarlon with guide Lucia and driver Davide. There were 6 of us total for these two days, which helped create a more relaxed and intimate experience. The locations and views were breathtaking, with some short unexpected stops with almost no other tourists. Lucia and Davide were hands down the best guides we had on our two month trip through Northern Europe - personable, funny, knowledgeable, insightful, and of course very professional (and they know the best places to take pictures!) We stayed at the Nicetravel hostel, which was clean and cozy. Best coffee machine and try the lamb soup, from a nearby farm. Bring waterproof clothing for the waterfalls on day two! Overall, definitely recommend Nicetravel, especially with Lucia and Davide!
We had an AMAZING experience on this tour David on day one was super friendly and helpful. Days 2-3 with Lucia and Davide were so wonderful! They took us to and extra waterfall and gave us great tips. They tools pictures for us and were so super friendly and accommodating. We loved this trip and would recommend it to anyone. -juliane and nick (Richmond, VA, USA)
I had a blast on this tour! David, our guide, was excellent, and squeezed in as many extra stops as he could. Day 1 we had 10 people on the tour and it felt the most "touristy" because the Golden Circle is closest to Reykjavik and has the most big tours going through it, but the two days thereafter were much more intimate - there were only five of us, and the places we went had fewer people. The weather didn't cooperate on day 3 and the boat tour was canceled, but it still felt like I got to experience the "real" Iceland because the weather is unpredictable! My favorite part of the tour was day 2, and wish the glacier hike had been longer! I'd recommend bringing waterproof clothing (between the waterfalls and the rain, you WILL get soaked) and being in as good of shape as you can be - this is not a difficult tour, but it is physical, especially if the weather isn't cooperating. Wish I'd opted for an even longer tour! The hostel we stayed at was welcoming and clean and surprisingly quiet. The soups at dinner were delicious. It also has a great view of a waterfall out back, and a soccer field next door! Just BYOB - there's no bar at the hostel, so if you want alcohol you have to bring your own.
Great experience overall. Stayed at a warm accommodation and met great people along the way. Minor issue at the glacier hiking (had reserved our hiking ahoes, but they didn't have record of it. Nevertheless, leader of the guide took control of the situation and problem fixed. Would have like to squeeze one more activity, maybe gotten close to the sheep or Islandia horses.
This 3-day tour is really great and the schedule is very reasonable. Our guide for the first day was Mika, a very nice guy. He is very patient and responsible. For the next 2 days, we only have 4 people in the group. It was almost a private tour. Big thank you to our guide, Jaka, and our driver, Michal. Both of them are very nice and responsible! Jaka taught us many things about Iceland and also showed us some special views that other tours don't include. The hostel we stayed is very quiet and tidy.We enjoy the tour a lot and we will definitely choose Nicetravle again next time! :)
It was amazing experience! I have really wanted to go Iceland before. It was my dream. With my guide, Antonio, who was really friendly and funny I had 5 tour packages but the best is this 3 days tour! More cheaper price than others and great people. If I visit Iceland again, I'll choose this tours for sure. Really miss that time.
The tour was great. I enjoyed mostly the informations about natural and geological history of Iceland provided by our guide Antonio. Probably nowhere else are natural and social history so connected like in Iceland.
Our guide michael is very nice, patient and knowledgeable. He told us a lot of things about geography and history. We enjoyed the 3 day tour very much and hope to come back again.
This tour was fantastic. The your guide Giuseppe was so friendly and knowledgeable. We had a very small group and we enjoyed the lovely sights of south iceland especially the glacier walk and glacier lagoon. Waterfalls were spectacular. Great pictures. Highly recommend. Hostel was brand new a comfortable. Met people and families from all over the world.
You can see lots of the amazing scenes during this tour... cool!! Great thanks to our 1-day guide David, he gave us the good understanding in every single place, in the meantime, he took care of us very thoughtfully... very highly recommend David, he made our Iceland trip more wonderful!!
This was a very nice tour and we enjoyed it a lot.
The first day -Golden Circle is ok, there are lots of tours for the same route. The next two days were amazing! lots of very nice waterfall and great experience with glacier and iceberg. Our tour for Day 2-3 was a very nice guy, explained a lots of details, and since we only have 3 person for day 2-3, he took us to Dyrhólaey on the way back. Highly recommended, especial for Day2 &3!
Beautiful, beautiful, and beatiful. So many waterfalls but they all have different charateristics and are all really, marvelous and beautiful. Very cold during the summer, so prepare warm clothes like fall-winter!
This tour was really great, we had enough the time to visit all these beautiful places and the glacier hiking was amazing!
We visited some place all at once. the Golden circle ,Geysers, The Golden waterfall, Iceland's south coast, volcanoes, waterfalls, black beach, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, Vatnajokull... The scenery was magnificent. And, Paolo and Robert our guides were very accommodating and cheerful. Paolo and Robert , Thank you so much. This is the best tour I have ever attended.

My friends and I had much fun in Iceland thanks to Davide!!! He gave us quite a bit of insights of the historical facts of Iceland and had been awfully helpful with our requests and enquiries. The mood of the entire trip was also relaxing and fun with Davide's entertaining narration. We will definitely return to Iceland for the Northern lights and ice caves as recommended by Davide!
It was a wonderful experience. The four of us only had 3.5 days in Iceland. The tour cover almost everything we want to see. The arrangement is very good, we were able to spend time on those magnificent views. David our guide is super cool, he is very accommodating and most of all very humorous. We had a very good time. He especially help us to arrange transportation on the return trip as we've booked a hotel near the airport, i.e. quite far from Reykjavik. If we have the chance to come again. we will surely join again for other parts of Iceland.
The tour was good, but I was disappointed by our guide who never lived in Iceland and came there just a few weeks before us.
