The translucent colors of the floating icebergs on the lagoon are caused by the play of lights on the ice crystals
The lagoon only appeared in 1920s when the warm temperature caused the melting of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier. Today, Jökulsárlón is the deepest lake in the country due to the heavy melting of glaciers. The surface of the lake is considered to be the lowest point in the island as it gradually lowers every year. As the ocean tides affect the lagoon, it becomes a mixture of salt and fresh water.
The translucent colors of the floating icebergs on the lagoon are caused by the play of lights on the ice crystals. This is the result of the blue lagoon that amazes each and every tourist. One of the most picturesque moments in Jökulsárlón is at sunset as it reflects the sunset colors beautifully.
Summer is the best time to get on a boat tour around the lagoon and take some lovely pictures as your souvenir for witnessing the magnificent place. The glacier lagoon Iceland adventure should definitely be included in your tours as you visit the country. The charm of this place is surely one you should not miss when you are in Iceland.
