Breidamerkurjokull

Breidamerkurjokull Glacier in Iceland

Breidamerkurjokullis an outlet glacier of the larger glacier of Vatnajokull in southeastern Iceland. Emerging as a tongue of the Vatnajokull, it ends in a small lagoon, known as Jokulsarlon. Over time, it has gradually been breaking down. The tongue of Breidamerkurjokull glacier is a major attraction for tourists. Tour operators conduct snowmobile and jeep tours to visit the glacier along the winding iceberg studded Jokulsarlon Lagoon. The base station for visits to the area is at Joklasel, which is approached from Höfn. While walking on the shore, the isolated big blocks of icebergs on the sand beaches can be seen. It is a beautiful sight to see!
