Iceland is home to the second largest iced mass in Europe. It’ called Vatnajökull and it’s placed in the South, with its circumference  tangent to the coastline. In that spot, the  Vatnajökull’s outlet, called Breiðamerkurjökull, discharges the blocks of ice produced by the glacier into the Jökulsárlón lagoon from where they float free toward the Ocean.

L’Islanda è la sede del secondo più vasto ghiacciaio europeo. Il Vatnajökull è localizzato a Sud, dove la sua circonferenza va a lambire la costa, formando la laguna Jökulsárlón. La lingua glaciale chiamata Breiðamerkurjökull, scarica i blocchi di ghiaccio prodotti dal ghiacciaio nella laguna, da dove questi vengono espulsi nell’Oceano.
