Jokulsarlon – Glacier Lagoon

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.

Iceland, driving along the south coast road.

A video from www.theholidaydirectory.co.uk Hardly any cars on the road even at peak holiday time in June makes driving in Iceland a dream. This video shows some of the scenery along the main coast road so sit back and enjoy the ride. Instead of just showing clips of the main attractions we like our videos to show what the real Iceland is like. The traffic has not been edited out of these video clips, what you see is what the roads are like.
