Panoramic view of Jökulsárlón with the volcano Öræfajökull (Hvannadalshnúkur, highest peak of Iceland, 2110 m) in the left, and Breiðamerkurjökull in the right background. This outlet glacier of Vatnajökull has experienced a major retreat since the mid 20th Century, when it reached close to the Atlantic coast, leading to rapid lake growth. The scenic beauty of this site does not only attract high numbers of visitors, but repeatedly also the movie industry.
