Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon | Amazing Scenes From Iceland Your Eyes Won't Want To Believe

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon | ICELAND

There were so many things that I wanted to see in Iceland that is actually had to pin point what my favourite part was after we had been skidded around the ring road. What I can say though, was that seeing Iceland's Diamond beach was up there on the list of MUST SEEs! Jorkualson Glacier Lagoon is just a sight. I don't know about you but its not everyday you get to see such sights. You eyes and your brain do a constant double takes as if to ask if they are experiencing what the eyes and brain as seeing and all the emotions that are entangled with whats before them.


We visited in July and for the most part the weather was great in Reykjavik and most of the journey on the Ring road. We a little bit of rain here and there but it was mostly dry. Driving through winding roads with waterfalls streaming from mountain tops, one lane bridges that allow passage from the ear greedy Atlantic that looks to re-claim land whenever weather permits and in the land of fire and Ice there is never much warning as to when the weather will shift. Low hanging clouds that's arrive as if by magic, crating an erry scene so mystical that you slow down not only due to lack of visibility but so you can slow take it all in and enjoy what is rather an odd but wonder experience. I am sure you have heard of the crazy weather in the UK but Iceland is on its own scale. If you come prepared for all sorts of weather, you will not only not mind the constant changes but probably wont take too much notice as you will just set out to enjoy the delightful visuals that are in store for you.

As you are approaching the glacier lagoon it sudden looks and feels so cold and there is ice EVERYWHERE! Endless pieces, chunks, all dancing about in the water as the little boats cruise people from the shoreline to up close and personal with the icebergs. You suddenly understand why this little island is called Iceland.  The beauty of visiting in the summer(evening though the pictures don't look like it), is that you can come here in the evening and you will still  be able to see much of the sights. I believe we arrived around 7pm or 8pm when I too these pictures.

What To Pack For A visit To Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon :

I will be sharing a detailed post on what to pack for a trip to Iceland but as you can see this is what summer tends to look like in this part of Iceland on some occasion. So dress warm and wear suitable shoes.

Shops Near The Site:

There is also only one small cafe on site, which also closes by 7pm  so be sure to bring a flash with some warm tea or coffee and the temperature drops without warning.

Below are some of the pictures from our exploring of the area. Enjoy! 


Sheets of ice like you have never seen before.



The people in the image below look so small. They are standing close to the road that leads up to the Glacier Lagoon and just before the bridge that divides the Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach from which the iceberg slowly flow into the Atlantic.


Grab a ticket and go for a boat cruise.

Aside from exploring much of the area on foot, you also have access to Glacier Lagoon cruise that take you around the lagoon to get close to the icebergs. You also spot a couple of seals in the distance. You are free to roam the surrounding area at your own leisure as there are no gates or enterance fees other than paying for the boat ride.





Grab some ice and take a bite! Or just pose.
