Watch the Sunrise from Ice Beach

Rate this Adventure Iceland Ice Beach

Added by Matthew Eaton

Spectacular sunrise location near a major tourism spot in Iceland. The Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon is a 4.5 hour drive from the capital city of Reykjavík.

One of the more popular sites in Iceland is the Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon, but an equally amazing site lies right across the highway where icebergs wash ashore after leaving the ice lagoon. These pieces of ice make for a stunning view on the black sand beach and are not to be missed at sunrise!
