Jökulsárlón was the location used for filming of the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish Vs Jaguar XKR car chase sequence in Die Another Day (2002). Filming required 30cm thick ice and lasted 3 weeks.

Make sure you walk out to the ocean to catch the washed up icebergs. You might see seals there too.

Go around sunset to catch the beautiful reflection off the lagoon. Also a popular spot to watch the northern lights (conditions permitting)

Also check out the beach in the other side of highway 1. The black sand and large blocks of ice on the shore are beautiful.

Shortly after evading russian soldiers and a helicopter, James Bond is warmly invited into an iceberg-shaped boat using a Union Flag signal on this glacial lake in A View to a Kill (1985).

Mostly frozen beginning of March. But good fun to do some seal-watching!

No swimming icebergs in winter. But come here to see the sunset, while watching the seals playing in the water from a few meters away.

Take the Zodiac tour. Less people, you will get much closer to the glacier and the ice and it's just so much fun! Not cheap but worth it. Much better than the standard amphibious boat tours.
