Laguna glaciale Jokulsarlon,Iceland
Jokulsarlon is considered one of the most spectacular places in Iceland to observe the dance of the Northern Lights. It is a lake of glacial origin that borders the wonderful Vatnajökull National Park, located in the south-east of the country. Its beauty is thanks to numerous icebergs that detach from Breiðamerkurjökull, the southern slope of Vatnajökull. It is the largest ice cap in Europe by volume.
The Jokulsarlon lagoon freezes during the winter and the huge amount of icebergs floating in its waters remain trapped in the ice, creating an unparalleled contrast of shapes and colors. Shades that from the early hours of dawn light up the bay with soft pink hues, then move on to the warmer and brighter colors of the sunset and finish with the magnificent green and purple tones of the Aurora Borealis. These blocks of ice shine like large precious stones and take up to 5 years to reach the Atlantic Ocean. Slowly they melt, change shape, position and size and give life to a landscape that is always different and simply unique.
The Northern Lights reflected on the ice blocks of this lagoon is undoubtedly one of the most evocative experiences to live in Iceland. This majestic place is also a perfect place to spot large colonies of seals and a large number of seabirds hunting for food in the sea. This is an area of complete harmony, dominated by one of the most beautiful luminous natural phenomena. The lagoon is now a tourist destination that attracts visitors from all over the world and can be visited through organized excursions and tours. Info on the Official Site.
