Nature’s Beauty in Breiðamerkurjökull

There is an enormous natural cavern of unbelievable beauty Breiðamerkurjökull glacier in Iceland’s Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. Due to many years of underground lava flow and geothermal heat emissions interacting with the hydrologic cycle which has resulting in this breathtaking natural formation.

The dense wall of the cave is made of ice which was formed by centuries of compression and stifling amounts of pressure. As ice involved in this process achieves higher levels of density, it is able to prevent less red and yellow light from the sun to pass through it, giving the cave its soothing blue glow.
