The Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon is world-renowned for its stunning beauty and unique features. Bordering the Vatnajokull National Park, this large lagoon is filled with meltwater and icebergs from the nearby Breidamerkurjokull glacier.
The massive icebergs in this lake are thousands of years old and are an awe-inspiring sight. Wildlife sightings are also common here, as Jokulsarlon is a home and breeding ground for Arctic terns, seals, and other animals.
Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon is a must-see for professional and amateur nature and wildlife photographers. No matter the time of year, the views here are unparalleled, and the ancient icebergs are the perfect subject for your photographs.
