Welcome to Lagarfljót


Real or imagined, the poor beast must be pretty chilly – Lagarfljót starts its journey in the Vatnajökull ice cap and its glacial waters flow north to the Arctic Ocean, widening into a 38km-long, 50m-deep lake, often called Lögurinn, south of Egilsstaðir. Whether you see a monster or not, it's a lovely stretch of water to circumnavigate by car.
