Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach
On the Diamond Beach you can see dozens of big blue icebergs, floating around a massive glacier lagoon with broken shards of pristine ice washing up onto the black sand beaches, creating a shimmer that resembles diamonds.
The glacier lagoon is formed when a glacier has melted more than it moved and leaves behind a glacier footprint filled with water. The remaining glacier will still feed the lagoon with calving ice as it melts and moves throughout the year. Depending on how often the glacier calves will determine how much ice is in the lagoon.
What do I need to bring
Warm clothes and rain coats.
Icelandic weather can be unpredictable and change in a short amount of time.
