In a country of epic landscapes, this was my absolute favourite place! Quite literally, Iceland’s Jökulsárlón (glacial river lagoon) is straight out of a James Bond movie, with scenes from ‘View To A Kill’ and ‘Die Another Day’ filmed here.
It’s definitely worth taking the lagoon tour aboard an amphibious vehicle – you get up close and personal with the icebergs, can spot birds and, if you’re really lucky, seals. You even get to taste some 1000 year old ice, which tastes like… er… frozen water 🙂
