Iceland South - Route 1 - Jökulsárlón
Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón (glacial river lagoon) is a large glacial lake in southeast Iceland, on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park. Situated at the head of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, it developed into a lake after the glacier started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The lake has grown since then at varying rates because of melting of the glaciers. It is now 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) away from the ocean's edge and covers an area of about 18 km2 (6.9 sq mi). It recently became the deepest lake in Iceland, at over 248 metres (814 ft), as glacial retreat extended its boundaries.[1] The size of the lake has increased fourfold since the 1970s.It is considered as one of the natural wonders of Iceland.

Jökulsárlón è il più grande e più conosciuto lago di origine glaciale dell'Islanda. Situato a sud del ghiacciaio Vatnajökull, tra il Parco nazionale Skaftafell e la città di Höfn, apparve per la prima volta tra il 1934 e il 1935 e dal 1975 crebbe dai 7,9 km² agli attuali 18 km² di superficie, a causa dello scioglimento accelerato dei ghiacciai islandesi. Possiede una profondità massima di 260 m, il che lo rende il lago più profondo d'Islanda. E' considerato come una delle meraviglie naturali dell'Islanda
