Jökulsárlón the glacial lake is a unique natural place not to be missed on your journey In Iceland. Ice flow from a nearby glacier float in the lake and you have the option of seeing them close up on a boat trip. Best is to leave Reykjavik very early in the morning, this is a long day driving along the South coast.
On your journey you will drive across the Mýrdalssandur and Eldhraun, the largest lavafield ever to flow on Earth in historical time, and to the small village Kirkjubaejarklaustur. From Klaustur, continue over Skeidarársandur, vast tracts of black sandy desert washed down by numerous torrential glacial rivers.
A Stop at the Seljalanfsfoss waterfall is a must – and the walk behind the waterfall.
Continue to Jökulsarlón, the Glacial Lagoon where huge icebergs, sculptures of nature, broken off the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier float and grind together in the deep blue waters of the lagoon.
