Jökulsárlón is the best known and the largest glacial lake in Iceland. It is situated at the south end of the glacier Vatnajökull between the Skaftafell preservation area in Vatnajökull National Park and the town of Höfn. The lagoon is filled with large icebergs, which are calving off the glacier tongue of Breiðamerkurjökull.
It first appeared only in 1934-1935, the lake grew from 7.9 km² in 1975 to at least 18 km² today because of the heavy melting of the Icelandic glaciers. Approaching a depth of 250m, Jökulsárlón is now the deepest lake in Iceland. It is only separated from the sea by a thin strip of land, and the combined action of the glacier, the river which empties from the lake, and the ocean may eventually transform it into an inlet of the sea. There are plans to prevent this from happening since the only road in the area passes over the narrow isthmus.
During summer, you can enjoy a 30-minute boat ride on the Jökulsarlon.
Along the way, we will stop at some of the attractions along the South Coast: Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, Reynisfjara black beach and even more, time permitting.
