Jökulsárlón

Ratings
9.3/10

Jökulsárlón er den største, og kanskje den mest kjente, bresjøen på Island. Den ligger ved sørenden av isbreen Vatnajökull mellom Skaftafell nasjonalpark og Höfn. Sjøen oppstod først i 1934–1935 og vokste fra 7,9 km² i 1975 til minst 18 km² i dag på grunn av kraftig smelting av isbreen. Med en dybde på om lag 200 meter er Jökulsárlón nå trolig den nest dypeste innsjøen på Island.

Jökulsárlón ligger helt ved kysten og erosjon fra isbreen og elven som renner ut fra innsjøen vil trolig gjøre den om til en vik eller fjord en gang i fremtiden. Det er planer om å hindre dette siden den eneste veien i området går over et smalt eide mellom innsjøen og havet.

Innsjøen ligger like ved Hringvegur, den islandske ringvegen, og busser har rute mellom Höfn og Reykjavík og stopper vanligvis her. Innsjøen er fylt med isfjell, som har kalva fra breen Breiðamerkurjökull.

Nær Jökulsárlón ligger det to andre bresjøer, Fjallsárlón og Breiðárlón.

I media

Flere filmer har scenar fra Jökulsárlón, inkludert Beowulf og Grendel, Tomb Raider, Die Another Day, Batman Begins og Med døden i sikte.

Jökulsárlón was the location used for filming of the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish Vs Jaguar XKR car chase sequence in Die Another Day (2002). Filming required 30cm thick ice and lasted 3 weeks.

Make sure you walk out to the ocean to catch the washed up icebergs. You might see seals there too.

Go around sunset to catch the beautiful reflection off the lagoon. Also a popular spot to watch the northern lights (conditions permitting)

Also check out the beach in the other side of highway 1. The black sand and large blocks of ice on the shore are beautiful.

Shortly after evading russian soldiers and a helicopter, James Bond is warmly invited into an iceberg-shaped boat using a Union Flag signal on this glacial lake in A View to a Kill (1985).

No swimming icebergs in winter. But come here to see the sunset, while watching the seals playing in the water from a few meters away.

Take the Zodiac tour. Less people, you will get much closer to the glacier and the ice and it's just so much fun! Not cheap but worth it. Much better than the standard amphibious boat tours.
