Iceland Day 5: Jokulsarlon

We are almost at the end of the Iceland adventure - but the day that I was most looking forward to, and the trip that I had prioritised whilst organising. This was actually a two day trip, but I've bunged it together to save repeating myself!

Well, I'm more or less going to do the pictures do the talking with this one. I know it sounds lazy, but I think you'll see what I mean and why there's really nothing I need to say.


This is Jokularlon, Iceland's glacial lake. Photos from around it (see what I mean about the terrible weather actually working really well with the photos?) and from the boat.

















I know this post is a bit repetitive photo wise, but I really thought Jokulsarlon was an amazing sight and I can't think of any other way to even attempt to share this with you without overloading you with photos of it.

Also on this trip I went on a glacier hike - sadly no photos exist because I took my other camera with me and didn't discover til I got out there that I had put the older battery on it which died the second I turned it on. Bloody typical. It was awesome though, I got to walk around with the spiked shoes, discovered that walking downhill in them makes me feel like I'm going to die, and just enjoyed the vast nothingness of being on the ice. There was also an ice cave we got to go inside and I'm extra sad I wasn't able to take photos of that, especially as should I return again it'll almost certainly have collapsed.

  6. So Iceland in general was colder than I expected, especially as it was during summer! There wasn't a day that went past when I didn't wear at least a coat and a hoodie. I'd say this area in particular actually wasn't significantly colder - but it's hard to say accurately because I was also wearing thermals and a giant wooly hat, haha!

  7. It was good fun! The glacier was definitely unlike anything I've done before. Offered a unique perspective on things, haha.
