On the 21st of March, a fissure volcano erupted within a stones throw of where we were stood and has created worries that Katla may erupt!

Iceland – Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is one of natures wonders where huge icebergs float around on their epic journey to the ocean. It had been raining a lot so the ice was very blue because the rainwater fills up the cracks in the ice and make the blue color more visible than ever. In the passed few years the lagoon has become the deepest lake in Iceland at 284 meters but the former deepest and now second deepest lake in Iceland is Askja which is approximately 217 meters deep. The lagoon is getting deeper every day since Breidamerkurjokull glacier which is part of Vatnajokull glacier is continuously melting faster and faster. The lakes surface was measured more than 22 sq. km. in 2009.
