In this edition of Abandoned Iceland, we visited Jökulsárlón and found a handful of Icelanders, expats and one seal roaming around. No one else. It was truly incredible.

Thanks to GoCar Rental for providing the vehicle for our tours in Iceland and Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon for the accommodation.

The Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon is only 15 minutes away from the Jökulsárlón, and at the edge of Vatnajökull glacier. A truly wonderful place to rest at.

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
