A wondrous place in winter. The lagoon is surrounded by snow fields and snow dunes. Lazy fact seals frolic in the icy water, which giant icebergs float metres away. A photographer's dream. We loved it. The road to this lagoon from Vik was challenging with...More

This pace was just amazing to view. The mountainous background with the sun shining down on the glacier, making the blue of the ice glimmer. Also saw some Seals swimming and playing while we visited the lagoon.

The Jokulsarlon is a must for any trip to the Southern Coast because of its ease of access and beauty. It is a great place to visit during the day as well as at night (I recommend trying to see it in both lighting conditions)....More

We had stayed at Horgsland guesthouse. But it won’t fit in your budget. It might cost you around 300aud for 2 nights including breakfast. Around 45 minuets drive from the guesthouse to the Lagoon. No need to travel and stay... More
