Amazing glacier-filled lagoon
The drive to Jokulsarlon from Reykjavik is about 4.5 hours, and we made a round trip in a day. We had zero regrets about all the driving because it was just. that. amazing. You make your way to the area, and at first you dont see the lagoon. You drive right up to the lip and then you get out, and look down and it takes your breath away. a huge crater lagoon, filled with chunks of icebergs, just floating around. As with almost every natural wonder in Iceland, you can just...walk right into it. we claimbed down the rocky coast and waded a bit into the water. Some dudes were in there with wetsuits (which seemed INSANE!) and everyoneeee was taking photos. I licked a piece of ice just because i could. Truly the most beautful breathtaking thing I have ever seen. A MUST SEE!!!!
