Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon

The Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in our online webcam is one of the most beautiful places in Iceland. The lagoon was formed due to the separation from the Vatnayöküdl glacier, melting because of the global warming, forming icebergs and ice blocks that can be seen in the web camera. This place is very popular not for tourists only, but Icelanders themselves often come to admire the local landscapes.

Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, which is perfectly demonstrated by our web camera, lies at a distance of 1.5 km from the coastline. The area is just over 18 km2. The lagoon is considered as a lake and is the second largest lake in Iceland. It is interesting, Jökulsárlón Lake has grown in size four times over the past 40 years. The "Ice Cap" is especially beautiful - it is a glacial formation in the form of a dome. The height of the cap is just over 900 m. You can enjoy magnificent scenery from the shore of the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.

With the heat arrival, the icebergs seen in our web camera are melting, but in winter the lagoon is almost completely covered by a thick ice layer. In the near future, there is the formation of the fjord is possible in the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Melting glacier threatens to bring danger to the nearby road.

Lake Jökulsárlón in our live broadcast is rich in fish. There are seals live here, which can be seen mainly in the winter time. Also there are many birds here.

Unusual and mesmerizing landscapes of the beautiful north attract producers to shoot commercials, videos and films, such as "A View to a Kill " (1985), "Die Another Day " (2002), "Batman: The Beginning" (2005 year).
