Glacier lagoon - Jokulsarlon

Glacier lagoon - Jokulsarlon

Jokulsarlon is a glacial lagoon located on the south coast of Iceland. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, thanks to its breathtaking views. The lagoon is home to enormous icebergs that calve off the glacier and drift across its surface. The icebergs then flow out to the ocean and are eventually washed up on the beach. Jokulsarlon is also home to a variety of wildlife, including seals and birds. An amphibious boat tours are a great option for those who want to see the icebergs up close and learn more about the history and geology of the lagoon. During the tour, which lasts about an hour, a guide tells you about how the lagoon was formed, how it changes over time, and what animals you can find there. A kayak tour is a more active way to explore the lagoon. Kayaks allow you to get closer to the icebergs and reach places that you cannot reach by boat. The tour usually lasts about two hours and gives you the opportunity to admire the icebergs up close, as well as observe seals, which often stay near the lagoon. Both types of tours are a great opportunity to see this amazing place from a completely different perspective.
