What people say

"The young lagoon that, only 100 years ago was completely covered in glacial ice, is a beautiful spot at all times of day and compositions can be found in every direction. You can often see seals swimming around in the water and playing on the icebergs too, so keep your eyes peeled. The ever changing nature of this place makes everyone’s shots unique as icebergs continue to come and go, turning over and changing shape. "
"We took a boat tour around Jokulsarlon and we highly recommend doing this! We were lucky enough to be out on a day when the weather casted a mirror image of the glacier onto the water! This only occurs a handful of days during the year so if you get to see this consider yourself lucky! Tour time is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. "
"EN: Right next to the Diamond Beach (they even share a parking lot) is another glacier. Very beautiful and worth a visit. DE: Direkt neben dem Diamond Beach (sie teilen sich sogar einen Parkplatz) befindet sich ein weiterer Gletscher. Sehr schön und einen Besuch wert."
