Once the chunks of ice produced by the calving of Breiðamerkurjökull are small enough to float towards the sea, the surf washes them up on the beach.

They decay slowly on the black sand, producing unique shapes that only last for a couple of minutes.

Small icebergs have broken of the glacier tongue Breiðamerkurjökull, extending from the south end of Vatnajökull. Slowly melting the ice floats in Jökulsárlón towards the sea.

Tourists can enjoy a boat ride across the lagoon in old amphibious vehicles. To move icebergs out of the way a dinghy accompanies the tourists, pushing clear a waterway.
