Iceland's Glacier Lagoon
- In the summer of 2010 and 2011, we visited Iceland - possibly Europe's most dramatically scenic country. When Iceland was discovered in summer, the founder, so pleased by the lush potential farmlands, thought he has discovered the perfect country. So distraught by the winter that destroyed most of his herd and crops, he called the country Iceland.
The founder of Greenland decided on the name to try and influence people to move to it. So Iceland is one of the greenest countries whilst Greenland is one of the iciest countries.
Many visitors to Iceland are shocked and sometimes disappointed about the lack of ice. Fortunately, Jökulsárlón fulfills the desire to see ice. Fed by glaciers, the lagoon is constantly full of ice which is deposited on the nearby volcanic beach to create a spectacle not soon forgotten.
