Jökulsárlón is Iceland’s biggest glacier lagoon and is situated under Vatnajökull glacier which towers over the breathtaking and ever transforming ice-landscape. James Bond, Lara Croft and Batman have all paid a visit to the lagoon securing it on the pop culture map. Not a bad company that. Jökulsárlón, Iceland’s biggest and best-known glacier lagoon is growing in size each year and it’s currently Iceland’s deepest lake at 250 m. Icebergs continuously break off from the outlet glacier Breiðamerkurjökull creating the picturesque scenery. The second biggest glacier lagoon Fjallsárlón and a close neighbour of Jökulsárlón has become a tourist attraction in the recent years and popular for zodiac boat tours.
Haukadalur is the home of Geysir; the famous erupting hot spring. Currently Geysir is dormant, but little neighbour Strokkur erupts every 6-10 minutes and spews boiling hot water up to 25 m / 82 ft high. This is truly a geothermal fairytale landscape, which sparks colourful hills and steamy hot springs. Geysir can be found on the golden circle together with Thingvellir National Park and waterfall Gullfoss.
Iceland’s most spectacular and powerful waterfalls can be found in rivers originating from glaciers. Gullfoss waterfall is one of Iceland’s most prominent waterfalls, dropping down a few levels within the great canyon of Hvítá glacial river. This waterfall and others you can see on guided tours and self-driving expeditions.
