Diamond Beach and Glacial Lagoon – Iceland

Click through to see the full album!

Should you visit Iceland for more than a few days, taking a trip to Jökulsárlón is a must. Literally translated as glacial lagoon, this lake is the route taken from the edge of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier to the sea, and full of icebergs and ice sheets making their way down this path.

The surrounding black sand beaches see a lot of these glaciers thrown around and broken up, where they are then washed back to shore. This means tourists have given this the nickname of the Diamond Beach.
