DUE TO A BAD WEATHER FORECAST FOR SATURDAY THE FIREWORK SHOW WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL SUNDAY THE 18TH OF AUGUST AT 22:30.
The annual fireworks show at Jökulsárlón in the Vatnajokull Region is held around the middle of August each year. This is a event you want to miss and you will always remember. This year it is held on the 17th of August and starts at 23:00 o’clock. It is the 19th time it is held and last year about 2.500 visitors enjoyed the show on Jökulsárlón.
The icebergs are illuminated and bathed in colors from the magnificent firework show in natures most spectacular surrounding creates an extraordinary experience for spectators.
The firework show is hosted by the volunteers in the search and rescue (SAR) team in Höfn and this is their main fund raising.
Here are some photos from the preparation for the firework show in 2018:
