Glacial beauty Jökul­sár­lón, Ice­land

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Travel & Style -

Un­der Ice­land’s mid­night sun, the an­cient melt­wa­ter and glis­ten­ing chunks of ice of Jökul­sár­lón come alive in a pal­ette of red and or­ange. This Glacial River La­goon, as its name trans­lates to, is a rel­a­tively new at­trac­tion, aris­ing only in the early 20th cen­tury as the tongue of the nearby Breiðamerkur­jökull glacier has be­gun to slowly melt and re­treat. The la­goon is ever grow­ing and chang­ing, each year more im­pres­sive – no won­der this Nordic na­tion is known as the Land of Ice and Fire. Its other mag­nif­i­cent at­trac­tions in­clude wa­ter­falls, gey­sers and even div­ing the tec­tonic rift be­tween two con­ti­nents. Ice­land Lux­ury cre­ates be­spoke itin­er­ar­ies that bring this el­e­men­tal des­ti­na­tion to life.
