The Glacier Lagoon is located almost 400 km from Reykjavík on the main road that goes around the whole island. It is known not only for floating pieces of ice, but especially for broken pieces of ice on the beach. It is located in the Vatnajokull National Park and is formed by the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier. Among other things, it is known for the fact that seals live here, which can be observed swimming between glaciers.
It is the name for one of the two beaches covered with pieces of glaciers playing a huge number of colors.
Crystal clear ice
Crystal clear to translucent interestingly shaped pieces of ice cover both beaches.
Large pieces of ice
The beaches are made up not only of small but also such large pieces of ice.
Diamond beach 2
At the other end of the bay is the second beach, which is dotted with even more glaciers.
In the background of the glaciers are huge waves that are still whipping the beach, making it impossible to walk smoothly between the glaciers.
The river carries pieces of ice that are released from the glacier into the lagoon to the ocean.
In the winter months, the lagoon is sometimes covered with a continuous layer of ice.
Large ice floes float in the lagoon, especially in the winter months.
