About This Spot

Jökulsárlón is a glacial lagoon on the south east coast of Iceland and is. truly magnificent place to visit and is an absolute must for anyone visiting southern Iceland.

Here the Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier, part of larger Vatnajökull Glacier, sheds large chunks of glacial ice into the lagoon. These large chunks of ice flow into the sea (an impressive sight to watch) and get washed back onto the beach by the tide. For photographers this means an endless, and ever changing, playground of ice to photograph.
