Boat tours on Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. They load on land, drive into the lagoon ...
... and motor through the icebergs breaking off the glacier. The lagoon covers 7 square miles and is 800 feet deep in spots. Saltwater backing up the river prevents the lagoon from freezing.
It was quite windy! It was a chilly walk out and a warm wind assisted the walk back. We could actually feel the warmth of the sun.
We had a great time walking, looking at the many shapes, sizes and colors of the icebergs. And the sun was shining!
So many photo opps!
At Fjallsarlon Glacier Lagoon we walked closer to the glacial tongue.
This was a shorter walk in Skaftafell National Park.
One of the many glaciers we saw today. The scenery was spectacular, so happy the sun was out!
This is the Diamond Beach. Icebergs from the lagoon float down the river and wash up on the black sand beach of the Atlantic Ocean.
Towards the end of the day, the landscape changed to volcanic lava rock covered with yellow moss.
