Fjallsárlón is a glacier lagoon just West of Jökulsárlón. Unlike Jökulsárlón, Fjalsárlón has no direct access to the ocean, so there are no seals or tides, this also means that the water is not as fresh and reflects the soft brown of the lagoon floor as it is scraped by the massive icebergs. The lagoon is fairly small so you are close to the glacier shelf. The jagged glacier edge is a place where you might witness ice calving in the Summer months. Zodiac boat tours run in the Summer months and take visitors really close to the ice shelf.
