Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is one of the most amazing natural wonders of Iceland and one of the most popular attractions for travelers to visit. The lagoon started to form in 1934 when the glacier started to retreat in the area. In 1956 the size of the lagoon was 4,5 square kilometers and in 1975 the lagoon had reached the size of 8 square kilometers. Today the size of the lagoon is estimated to be around 25 square kilometers and it's constantly getting larger as approximately 500 square meters of ice break off the glacier every year. Jokulsarlon is the deepest lake in Iceland with maximum depth of 260 meters in front of the glacier edge.

This is the perfect place to experience unspoiled nature and unique environment where huge icebergs calve off the largest glacier in Europe, the great Vatnajokull, and float around the lagoon in all shapes and colors.

Jokulsarlon is located in the south-east part of Iceland, in the realm of Vatnajokull. It's about 379 kilometers east of Reykjavik and 78 kilometers west of the village Hofn. The lagoon lies along the major ring road so it's easily accessed.

Jokulsarlon is a place you simply can not miss when visiting Iceland. Book an Adventure Tour with us in our special Zodiac boats and let our experienced guides take you to all the secrets and wonders of this magnificent glacier lake.
