Today the Jökulsárlón is very popular by visitors who enjoy cruising between the huge icebergs on the lagoon.

Jokulsarlon, also referred to as The Glacier-Lagoon, is on the south east coast of Iceland.

Jökulsárlón is a deep lake clustered with floating icebergs, between the Breiđamerkurjökull glacier and a ridge of glacial till.

The glacial lagoon began to form around 1948.

Previously, the Jökulsá river flowed from under the glacier directly out to sea, swiftly and dangerously.
