Jokulsarlon - The Ice Lagoon

Iceland

Sightseeing - Easy

A difficult ride on a heavy hire bike with wide tyres and heading into a 35km head wind. We start on Route 1, the famous Icelandic Ring Road, and head out over the Sudersveit, a long and barren coastal strip where impressive looking mountains soon disappear and we are left out in the open. Keep going as you will soon start to see large glaciers in the distance, namely the Breiðamerkurjökull, a tongue of Europe’s largest glacier, the Vatnajökull which will get closer until we finish at Jokulsarlon, the famous ice lagoon which is filled with meltwater and icebergs.
