Get your iceberg fix here! Icebergs calve off of the huge Jokulsarlon Glacier. They range from bergy bits washing up on the shore to mammoth floating icebergs. We did not take the boat ride and opted to drive to the park at the other side...More

It will all depend on your schedule, but for sure this is an amazing place, however as I said in one of my posts, you won't miss anything if you skip the boat trip in the lagoon. As someone already said, check some picture... More
