In the background you can see the Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier for the Vatnajökull ice cap, one of the largest glaciers in Europe.

I still vividly remember when I saw my first glacier in 2015, the Mer de Glace in the Mont Blanc massif, the biggest glacier in France.

This is something else entirely.

Btw “Jökull” (the “ll” is pronounced “tl”) is the Icelandic word for glacier.

June 2017, Jökulsárlón
