Glacier River
Some icebergs are temporarily grounded as they float down the river from Jökulsárlón, Iceland’s glacial lagoon. A high tide or further melting will allow them to continue their journey to the Atlantic Ocean. It will be a rather short journey, since the Glacier River is only 1500 meters (4900 feet) long.
The Glacier River Bridge carries Route 1, the Ring Road that encircles Iceland. Note how the rock surrounding the bridge’s footings prevents icebergs from hitting those supports.
