Flight to Iceland

Lagarfljot

The river Lagarfljót begins in the Vatnajökull icecap and flows north to the Arctic Ocean.
For much of its length, it isn't a river at all but more like a long; narrow lake, "Lögurinn".

The lake, is Iceland's third largest, 35 kilometres long and 2.5 kilometres wide.

It's greatest depth is 112 m, leaving it's bottom almost 90 meters below sea level.

It is believed that the lake is inhabited by the famous serpent monster called Lagarfljótsormurinn, whose back is sometimes sighted rising over the waves.

It was a small worm from the bushes oringinally, but he grew to gigantic proprtions by gloating over a ring that a young girl decided to keep with him.

To this day the monster can be seen struggling in its shackles and no locals doubt its existence.

The monster has over the years become the emblem of the area.
