  • This is the most beautiful day of our stay with Iceland, unbelievable the beautiful images of ice, water, sun and then the movements of it towards the sea. Unbelievable and sure to do on foot, along the shore towards the sea. Definitely do, if necessary, dedrive!

  • A beautiful black sand beach where icebergs come ashore. Beautiful in the evening at sunset. It is also where the sea and the lagoon meet ...

  • This little gem you'll encounter right along the road. A great spectacle of slow towards sea floating ice floes.
