Destination : Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, Iceland

Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, Iceland

Jökulsárlón is a large glacial lake in southeast Iceland, on the edge of Vatnajökull national Park. To be honest, Iceland is the most spectacular country I ever seen, but this spot is definitely my favorite place in the world.

It’s hard to describe this place: colors, sounds, smells… everything is simply surreal. This place is always changing: icebergs come from the glacier and slowly go into the ocean. You’ll never see the same thing here, cause every day in Jökulsárlón is unique!

I took some shoots from the lake’s shore, trying to go far from tourist, just to be alone. After, I walked around taking random pics. At the end I tried to climb up a hill near the lake and there I took lots of photos, with and without boats, kayaks or people on the shore.

Jökulsárlón is very easy to reach. It’s on the main Icelandic road (The Ring Road) between Skaftefell nat. Park and Höfn and has a large parking site. On the site, you can find a cafe, a souvenirs shop and you can also take a tour on amphibian boat on the lake

Autumn and spring are the perfect seasons to go to Jökulsárlón, especially during northern light nights.
