We’ve shown you black beaches, magnificent waterfalls and dangerous off road tracks. But we haven’t written about the most beautiful thing we saw in Iceland: Jökulsárlón. It’s a bit of a drive, especially when it’s dark, cold and snowy outside, but to us it was definitely worth it. Think: Blue Lagoon, turquoise water and silvery ice sculptures slowly drifting through the lake. It is truly magical. The lake was formed when the gigantic glacier Breidamerkurjökull started receding from the ocean’s edge some 40 years ago, creating what is now the deepest water of the country. Huge icebergs break free from the glacier and slide into the lake. From the lake the icebergs float through a narrow river towards the sea, a process that can take years. But a lot of the them wind up getting stuck on the black beach, which provides us with yet another spectacle. Some of the icebergs are white as milk and some are a beautiful transparent turquoise, depending on the air trapped inside the ice. And if you look long enough, you’ll see all kinds of shapes in the ice sculptures. I wish we could have taken one home and display it as art, but we all know what would have happened… How to get there? Follow the A1 Ringroad towards Skaftafell. You’ll spot the drifting ice sculptures of Jökulsárlón a little over 30 minutes after this town. Look left for the glacial lake. Look right for ice sculptures slowly disappearing into the ocean. P.S. James Bond fans might recognize this amazing spot from this scene.
