Stand before Jokulsarlon – a dramatic and untamed glacial lake – and we promise that you’ll be left breathless. Hulking blocks of ice drift into this icy-blue lagoon – all castoffs from the enormous Vatnajokull Glacier- and bob here before slowly moving out to sea. Jokulsarlon holidays are all about climbing aboard a boat to glide across this azure lake and get within touching distance of ice fragments. These frozen blocks glisten and shine in Iceland’s glorious sunshine, making even the most intrepid of explorers feel as though they’ve shrunk, and have ended up surrounded by enormous icy diamonds.
The sheer scale of your surroundings on a Jokulsarlon holiday is sure to baffle you. While out on the water, you’ll spot seals playing in the waves and gulls soaring overhead as waves gently lap the black sand shores. Thanks to the midnight sun during the summer months, Jokulsarlon holidays are perfect for long sunny days when the weather is mild, however this icy lagoon is also a great place to spot the Northern Lights during the winter months. Watch as the dancing beams of purple, green and pink reflect perfectly on the frosty water. For a view that you'll never forget, arrive at dusk and admire the play of colours bouncing off the surrounding hillsides in the honeyed light. Be sure to have your camera at the ready; this is when Jokslsarlon is at its most atmospheric and we can guarantee that you'll be truly awe-struck.
