If you are looking for the perfect scenery for icebergs, you should not miss the lagoon. The icebergs have many different sizes and fantastic unique shapes. It's easy to access, and just right next to the diamond beach so it's the must. Do not hesitate....More

You hardly believe your eyes. In a relatively small lagoon that borders the Geltsjer and meets the ocean on the other side, huge gigantic ice rocks in every colour of Blue and Black greet you. The special boat that take you into the water is...More

This place is beyond words. It is very other worldly and definitely worth the drive! We took an overnight tour from Grayline tours (not the best, but not the worst either) and stayed in a bed and breakfast hotel 10 mins drive from the Lagoon....More
