Got here close to sunset and made for some of my favorite photos i've ever taken. I could spend hours here just dreaming and watching the ice float blissfully by as it takes a journey out to sea.

We liked this place almost better than Jokulsarlon due to the fact that we were able to stand on the large ice chunks by the land. It was a pretty decent hike but over good terrain with some stairs. Worth the extra time and stop.

We were told by the amphibian boat tour guide to be sure and stop here after visiting Jokulsarlon Lagoon. Glad we did. It's much windier than the Lagoon, but the glacier is so much closer. There are some icebergs in the water here too.

Also there is a cafeteria at this spot in the parking area in case you need a restroom to change the baby or get some food for a reasonable price.
