The most popular place to visit from Höfn is Jökulsárlón, which is about a 40 minutes drive from Höfn. It is on the borders of Vatnajökull National Park, at the head of Breiðamerkurjökull. Jökulsárlón is a large glacial lagoon and is constantly growing because of the melting of the Icelandic glaciers. The size of the lagoon has increased fourfold since the 1970s. A fun fact about Jökulsárlón, is that the lagoon has been a setting for four Hollywood movies: A View to Kill, Die Another Day, Tomb Raider and Batman Begins. Make sure to drive to the lagoon and take in the unique scenery. This might be your only chance to visit such a spectacular place and experience the powerful atmosphere of the glacier.
