This is a world famous beach with black sand in the southern part of Iceland. No, you cannot swim here as the water is too cold. There are no tents with coctails or beer. But it is much better this way, just look at the view!

Jökulsárlón is a glacial lake in the southern part of Iceland. The colour of the icebergs drifting in the water surface is bright blue. This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen!
The lake is located near Vatnajökull, which is Europe’s largest glacier. The national park that includes Jökulsárlón is second-largest in Europe after Yugyd Va in Russia. Jökulsárlón keeps growing as a result of global warming.
Ice caves can be found at the edges of glaciers. The cave in the Skaftafell National Park is not an exception. The sunlight squeezes through the ice making the top of the caves light blue and the whole cave amazingly beautiful! At the bottom you will see a stream of melt water.
Svartifoss is our favourite waterfall in Iceland. It looks like an organ, a keyboard instrument, which makes you feel like you are in an ancient church. The rocks around the waterfall remind pipes. You keep thinking that an invisible musician is going to start playing a sonata of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Imagine a natural swimming pool that you can access every day of every year. Imagine also that this swimming pool is surrounded by black rocks that gives you a feeling that you are on another planet. You will say that it is too good to be true. It is not! Welcome to the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa in southwestern Iceland.
Geysir and Strokkur are a couple of erupting hot springs, or geysers, located in a valley in southwestern Iceland called Haukadalur.
The geysers alone can be a good reason to come to Iceland. Their eruptions is one of the most fascinating things we have seen in our life!
