Iceland - Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon
Jokulsarlon is the best known and the largest of a number of glacial lakes in Iceland. It is situated at the south end of the Vatnajokull glacier between the Skaftafell preservation area in Vatnajokull National Park and Hofn.
The lake provides outstanding views of the Ice Cap, which is a vast dome of ice that rises to a height of 3,000 feet (910 m). It spills to the lagoon 12 miles (19 km) away from the jagged glacier hill to the edge of the water line. The lake developed only about 60 years ago (1948 is mentioned), when the entire area was less than 100 feet (30 m) of glacier, which was only 250 yards (230 m) from the Atlantic Ocean, and 2 miles (3.2 km) away from Vatnajökull. Vatnajökull was at the shore line of the ocean and dropped icebergs into the ocean. However, it started drifting in land rapidly every year leaving deep gorges en route, which got filled with melted water and large chunks of ice.
