ÍS: Jökulsárlón (Glacial Lagoon)

Iceland31Jökulsárlón (literally “glacier’s river lagoon”) is one of the most breathtaking sights in Iceland. Located on the south coast, this lagoon is filled with icebergs, chunks of the glacier Breiðamerkurjökull that have broken off and floated away from the edge of the glacier. You are sure to see a seal or two swimming around amongst the icebergs, and I’ve heard that killer whales sometimes swim in the from the ocean to hunt the seals.
