Information about Drangajökull
Drangajokull is the only glacier in the Westfjords. It is the only glacier in Iceland whose altitude is entirely below 1,000 meters. In addition to this, it is the only glacier in Iceland that is not in retreat (i.e., getting smaller). Drangajokull lies north of the Strandir region and south of the Hornstrandir nature reserve. Kaldalon, meanwhile, is a short fjord into which the glacier calves. The name literally means 'cold lagoon' and it is totally magical. It could be thought of as the Jokulsarlon of the Westfjords — although it is starkly different and visiting is a much more personal experience.
