This epic lagoon is the biggest star on the South Coast. The dream-like glacier lake - the deepest lake in the country - is situated at the southern end of the Vatnajökull ice cap. As the glacier retreats, icebergs of all sizes and shapes break off its tip floating across the lagoon, drifting slowly from the glacier's tip towards the ocean. This exciting environment is constantly changing as the massive glacier tongue retreats more and more.
Jokulsarlon has appeared in many movies. To name a few: Batman Begins and the James Bond movies: A View to a Kill and Die Another Day. We spend some time here enjoying the magnificent scenery.
A short walk away, you can find the Diamond Beach (or Crystal Beach), a nearby black sand beach where the enormous icebergs are washed ashore and break into millions of ice crystals, decorating the sand as glittering diamonds.
