JOKULSARLO­N GLACIAL LA­GOON, ICE­LAND

- Travel · John

THE ice washes ashore from the Brei­damerkur­jokull glacier, an out­let of the vast Vat­na­jokull glacier, which tum­bles into the 932ft deep la­goon. It’s pop­u­lar with tourists and film-mak­ers – two Bond movies have been filmed here.

The ice takes 800 years to travel down the glacier to the wa­ter, so a piece you pick up on the beach prob­a­bly first fell as snow not long af­ter King John signed the Magna Carta. Which is cool.
