ICELAND: Fjallsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Fjallsarlon is another glacier lagoon in Iceland, only about 10 minutes away from the more popular Jokulsarlon. For that reason, Fjallsarlon is a great destination if you'd like to enjoy the landscape away from the crowds.

Our visit to Fjallsarlon was quite short, as at the parking lot here, we discovered that we had a flat tire on our rental car! During our visit (2016) the parking lot was under construction, so it is possible that there is more tourism to this spot than previously. Regardless, it's a great stop for a different view of the glacier. There are boat tours offered here as well.

Overall, this is a nice stop if you are visiting Jokulsarlon and the Diamond Beach.

This is part of a series of posts about our trip to Iceland.
