    Stop At: Glacier Lagoon, Skaftafell National Park Route 1, Jokulsarlon 781 Iceland

    Vatnajokull glacier is massive, covering 14,000 sq km and it is Breidamerkurjokull, one of the many sections of this great glacier, that creates the magical Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Large hunks of ice cleave from the glacier, falling into the lagoon before flowing out into the ocean. These large sparkling pieces of ice are eventually pushed back onto the beach by the ocean waves creating an impromptu ice sculpture garden on the black sands giving the beach its name, Diamond Beach.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Fellsfjara, Diamond Head Drive Glacier Lagoon Jokulsarlon, Jokulsarlon Iceland

    When large icebergs have floated out of the glacier lagoon and towards the ocean, they are often pushed back onto the beach by ocean waves where they sparkle like diamonds on the black sand.
