Absolutely worth the 4.5 hour drive from Reykjavik. The sound of the ice the way it glistens when the sun comes up will leave you in awe. Take the drive

This was my favourite place in Iceland. We did a long walk around the lagoon and beach and then took a zodiac boat ride to the glacier. A great day
