We’re standing on the edge of Fjallsárlón. It’s a glacier lagoon adjacent to it’s more famous counterpart, Jökulsárlón.
It’s different, however. The water is murky brown like chocolate milk. Too opaque to peer through, the lake allows the meandering tourist to wonder what monsters may lurk below. This is Iceland, after all. The icebergs are stark white, piercing through the chocolate milk surface. And the starkest difference between it’s sister lagoon? Fjallsárlón is completely devoid of people.
