Fireworks show at Jökulsárlón.

This fireworks show is an annual event at Jökulsárlón, also known as the glacial lagoon. The number of visitors has been escalating every year and the last few years well over a thousand visitors have come to enjoy the show. Illuminated icebergs bathed in colour from the magnificent firework show in natures most spectacular surrounding creates an extraordinary experience for spectators.

The show is a collaboration between the Hornafjordur search and rescue association, Jokulsarlon boat trips and the Vatnajokull Region. All proceeds go to the Hornafjorður search and rescue association. So its for a good cause.

The preperation for the show starts during the day when the organizers sail between the icebergs and arrange 150 candles on them. Then the candles are lit and the fireworks show starts at 11 pm when fireworks are shot up from different locations in the lagoon.

I just wish I could be there. If you go, feel free to send me some photos and rub it in.
