Best thing we saw in Iceland, completely worth the trip around the coast from the capital. Good to see both when the tide is coming in as well as coming out as the iceburgs move in different directions in the lagoon opening. The giant iceburgs...More

Iceland is an absolutely beautiful country. Even in comparison, Jakulsarlon is incredible. My favorite stop while circling ring road!

This is definitely worth the drive. The lagoon was filled with icebergs with the giant glacier in the background. Take the walk to the beach, you won't regret it. It was certainly a highlight of our trip.

I've never seen anything quite like this glacier lagoon. I was super excited to visit, and despite the crummy weather on the day we went, it ended up being one of the highlights of the trip. We sat watching the ice pieces float and move...More

My opinion may not be a popular one regarding this place. This was one of our main attractions for our trip to Iceland. We stopped at Jokulsarlon Lagoon on the way to one of our Ice Cave Tours. The place itself is appealing, but definitely...More

We arrived at Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon at 9am in advance of the Crystal Cave tour. Being from Indiana, it's like nothing I've ever seen before. Huge chunks of ice dotted about a large lake situated at the head of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, it developed after...More

We opted for the boat trip when we did this excursion. It was worth booking to travel between the icebergs and you may see seals whilst you are there. I didn't see where the beaches were in relation to the lagoon so am... More

Sure, do it on your own. Go to the beach on the other side of the road - beautiful white pieces of ice laying on the black beach sand.
