Day 3 Glacier lagoon
Jökulsárlón – The Glacier Lagoon
We head east, along the southern shore to the unique Jökulsarlón Glacier lagoon. The lagoon developed around 60 years ago with continuing process of calving and falling of icebergs from the glacier tongue Breidamerkurjökull. These icebergs are seen in two shades, one type in milky white, while the other type is in bright blue colour, which is interplay of light and ice crystals. The lagoon is filled with fishes that drift in from the sea along with the tides. Seals gather in large numbers at the mouth of the lagoon to catch the fish during the winter, which is a sight to watch. On the way back to Vik we also visit Skaftafell national park that is part of Vatnajökull national park and contains some of the most prized natural sights of the country.
