Dream Iceland

The Stunning Glacial Lagoon

Jökulsárlón: Jökulsárlón or popularly known as Glacier Lagoon, which we get to see on Day-3 of our summer trip on the way to Mývatn. It is an absolute stunning sight to see. Located between Skaftafell National Park and Höfn, Jökulsárlón is the largest glacial lagoon in Iceland, which is caused by the retreat of a European glacier during 1934-1935.

Icebergs of all sizes and shapes can be found, which creates a fantastic imagination of a floating landscape. It’s majestic to watch the icebergs glow in the sun rays and listen to occasional sharp creaks caused in the glacier. During summer the ice cubes melt and flow to the sea and in winters it seems the icebergs simply get locked and are even more unique to experience.
