Details

We drove the short distance to Jolkullsarlon Glacier Lagoon. This was a very strange place with pieces of the glacier broken off due to global warming and making their way to the ocean. We took a walk around Diamond Beach where icebergs have washed back up on the black sand shore... kind of eerie but beautiful. We ate lunch overlooking the lagoon and then drove another ten minutes to Fjallsjokull Lagoon. We had reserved a zodiac boat ride in the lagoon. The sun came out and the boat ride was fun and interesting. Our well informed guide was Norbert from Poland. On the way back to Höfn we stopped at Hoffells Hot Pots for a quick soak in the hillside pots full of thermal water. Very nice! I wanted to try the local speciality, langoustines so we went to a casual restaurant and I had a langoustine pizza - ate the whole thing besides 2 pieces I shared with Kevin. He had fish and chips and a very big beer.
