Vatnajökull and Jökulsarlon

Vatnajökull is the largest glacier in Europe. There are a few places where it’s possible to get very close to it, including the Skaftafell/Vatnajökull National Park or Jökulsarlon, a lagoon where large pieces of ice come off from the glacier, forming icebergs. Next to it is a black sand beach called Diamond Beach: the name comes from the little icebergs stranded on the sand that look like diamonds… simply stunning!
