Black Sand Beach, Iceland

Ancient Ice

We had been driving for hours at a snail’s pace. The roads were like skating rinks, and angled. It was a heavy winter for Icelandic standards. Still, our adventure van from Kefcar car rentals ambled along.

We finally pulled into Jokulsarlon– a glacial lagoon with enormous icebergs that float around in a seemingly orchestrated dance before being sent out into ocean, to break-apart and melt.

There’s a black sand beach neardby where you can find the remnants of these massive icebergs littered like forgotten jewels.

This is one of them.
