Explore Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Rate this Adventure Iceland Fjallsarlon

Added by Lauren Schusterman

Stunning glacial lagoon right before the more popular, Jokulsarlon.  You'll have an opportunity to get some beautiful views and photographs with a chance for a bit of isolation.  

From the parking lot follow the well marked path down to the lagoon.  You will walk slightly uphill for a few minutes and then continue on the fairly flat trail until you reach a view point of the lagoon.  From here you can continue down to the shoreline to get some more up close views. Stay on the marked trails through this area to help with vegetation preservation.  Once on the beach you can walk the length of the lagoon if desired.   There are definitely a good amount of people who visit this lagoon however the numbers are significantly smaller than Jokulsarlon which affords you an opportunity to find a point right next to the lagoon without being surrounded by crowds. 

Theres the option to go on a guided zodiac boat tour of the lagoon for around $54 USD.

Climb the Tower at Hallgrimskirkja

Iceland / Hallgrimskirkja

Just a part of something to do while in Reykjavik. There is an epic church that stands out strong against the skyline.  Inside the church there is an impressive organ inside of the church.

Canyoning at Raufeldsgja

Iceland / Raudeldsgja

Copule clarifications. The first, I say Intermediate and advanced. The reason I say this is because getting into the canyon is pretty simple. Few rock hops and you will be in a little clearing.
