At the border of Vatnajökull, Jökulsárlón is a magnificent site. A glacial lagoon, created by the melting of Icelandic glaciers and continues to grow in size. The blue ice is natural and occurs when air bubbles that are trapped in the ice are squeezed out by the shear weight of the massive glacier, increasing ice crystal size and making it clear.
Location: Jökulsárlón, Iceland
