Glacial Lagoon - For the Ice Box

Icebergs in the Glacial Lagoon of Jökulsárlón, slowly cruising toward the ocean that awaits them just 1 km away.

 

Due to climate changes and warmer temperatures this area has experienced quite some transformation after the 1920s. A glacial lagoon of some impressive 260 m depth was formed, and the largest part of it took shape after 1950.

 

The lagoon has been a setting for four Hollywood movies namely, 'A View to a Kill', 'Die Another Day', 'Tomb Raider' and 'Batman Begins', in addition to the reality-TV series 'Amazing Race'.
