See a sunset over floating icebergs

#5 of 12 things to do in Reykjavik
Iceland keeps amazing you with its icy beauties, new and unique each time you come to admire them, for they are unstable and fragile like the ice itself. That is why, revisiting Iceland again and again, you can see something absolutely special, something never seen by anyone before you and something that won't be seen by anyone after you, either.

Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is not an exception. Every minute in this place is unique, as the icebergs, floating along the lake, are moving all the time. The lagoon is formed by the ice blocks, sliding down to the lake from the Vatnajökull glacier.

The ice blocks, like a pod of whales, are turning over, moving and melting slowly, staying alive only in memories and in magnificent photos.

Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is situated at a relatively far distance from Reykjavík, that is why you won't meet crowds of travelers here. However, it only adds to the attraction of the lagoon, as they won't prevent you from enjoying the silence, solitude and beauty of the floating ice, majestic and exquisite at the time.

It is noteworthy, that you can expect the most exceptional moments at sunset, when the caps of the melting icebergs are lit by the evening sun, looking like an exquisite crown of the Snow Queen, while the water is reflected on the sides of icebergs, playing with hundreds of tints of blue...
