Lonsoraefi (that mean Desert of Lagoon) is a private Natural Reserve who its ownwer is the Statafell Farm. You can see wondeful landscape with mountains of riolite and its many paths allow you to walk for many days if you want. A beautiful place where you can relax!
This vast desertic area is situate in the South-East cost of Iceland and it is call Sandur . This area is make by mud, sand and gravel that thanks the glacier they come there thanks to jokulhalp (glacier explosion) and to glacier river.
Jokulsarlon! Even though it was a very short cruise, 30 mins or so, the impression lasts a lifetime!
Here, floating on the glacial lake are icebergs of blue, white & black in color (depending on air & ash content) against the backdrop of huge ice-cap & mountain peaks.
It's unbelievably beautiful!
The scenery from our bus inbetween stops. The pure, natural beauty of this country will lure me back someday.
