One of the most beautiful parts of the island are the icebergs drifting on the water. It's a sight you simply cannot miss.

My suggestion:
Take the time to go on a long walk along the glacial lagoon.
My review

A phenomenon in the Icelandic landscape, Jokulsarlon is the opposite of the tourist sites in the north and the south of the island, but nevertheless you must come and appreciate the pure beauty of these icebergs which drift onto the lake before heading out to the ocean ...

I try to return to this place whenever I can because it's a paradise for photographers due to the effects of the light, the transparency and the reflection of the water and the ice. 

I also love the silence which surrounds Jokulsarlon, a silence only interrupted by the cracking of the ice, it's magical. You can hop on a boat tour in the summer but the best way to explore the island is on foot.

Remember to go and see the stranded chunks of ice on the beach on the other side of the bridge, they're spectacular...
