Watch Northern Lights At Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon Overview
The breathtaking glacial lagoon of Jokulsarlon is one of the unique places to watch the Northern Lights in action. Lying to the southeast of Vatnajökull National Park, the ice boulders on the black sandy beach pick up and radiate the green and red glow of the Northern Lights, resulting in a photogenic kaleidoscopic effect.

With a depth of around 248 meters, Jokulsarlon happens to be the deepest lake in Iceland. Owing to climate change, this lake becomes bigger year after year. Surrounded by lush vegetation, glistening snow, and gigantic mountains, Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon attracts a heavy influx of tourists. With no urbanization in this region and unpolluted skies, the lake is known to be a hotspot for enjoying an uncompromised sighting of the Northern Lights.
