Jökulsárlón, which actually means the “glacial river lagoon”, is a large glacial lagoon located in Southern Iceland, on the border of the Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest and most voluminous glacier. It is considered as one of the many natural wonders of Iceland since the Vatnajökull glacier breaks into pieces in the lagoon, giving birth to many icebergs that flow to the lagoon mouth and finally drift to the Atlantic Ocean.
Once these icebergs are in the Ocean, they float close to the shore and some of then eventually wreck on Jökulsárlón’s beach, which is unique since it is made of black volcanic sand. These amazing pieces of ice then slowly melt on the beach, giving photographers’ the opportunity to take beautiful shots, especially in June when visitors can enjoy the midnight sun.
