Once we were done with our boat trip, we went across the road to the ocean front where I proceeded to ride a glacier, because you know, when in Iceland?The colours were just incredible, and my photos don’t really do them justice, but you can get an idea of the gorgeous blues of the ice. We were probably there just over an hour in total, which was plenty of time to go on the boat and walk around, making the glacier lagoon the perfect stop off to break up a road trip.
We had a day full of glaciers when we started our drive back along the south coast of Iceland. We got up early to grab breakfast and stop off at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon before doing our glacier hike later in the day. Being so close to the glaciers was incredible, and you can easily stop off and walk around without going on one of the boat tours, but I’d recommend them as it we learned a bit about the glaciers forming and interesting facts. Not to mention we got to try a piece of glacier!
Fun fact: this lagoon was in the James Bond movie “A view to a kill” and tours started shortly after. When we were there, there were actually film scouts on our boat, so I expect to see this gorgeous place in an upcoming film in the future.
Have you ever gotten up close and personal with a glacier? I expected them to be saltier for sure.
