Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon Overview

Jökulsárlón: Stunning glacial lagoon in southeast Iceland, filled with floating icebergs from the Vatnajökull glacier. Surreal beauty, boat tours available, seals often seen lounging on ice. Must-visit for Iceland's natural wonders.

One of the best places to visit in Iceland, Jokulsarlon is a glacial lagoon bordering the southwestern edge of the Vatnajokull National Park. Dotted with icebergs throughout the year, Jokulsarlon is indisputably Iceland’s most beautiful attraction. At a depth of 248 meters below ground, Jokulsarlon is Iceland’s deepest lagoon. The black sand beach along the shores remains riddled with chunks of ice as the lake flows alongside, resembling little pieces of black diamond. Boat tours at the lagoon are quite common, although tourists frequent the spot for simply photographic outings or leisurely seal-spotting as well.

Location:
Southeastern Iceland

Best time to visit:
