3. Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier, and its surrounding area make up Iceland's largest national park. One of the most popular spots to visit in this park is Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. This is a great place to spot icebergs, which fill the lagoon year-round after calving from a larger glacier. Don't miss nearby Diamond Beach, a gorgeous black sand beach so dotted with sparkling ice crystals that it looks like it is covered in precious gems.
