Tourist Swims among Icebergs in Iceland

Norwegian tourist Sirin Johansen recently went for a swim among the floating icebergs in Jökulsárlón lagoon by Vatnajökull in south Iceland. Johansen regularly swims in the ocean during winter in her hometown of Tromsoe in north Norway.

After the swim, Johansen told Fréttabladid that the water in the glacial lagoon had not been exceptionally cold. She is a member of swimming club “Ice Skin” and likes a chilly dip.

Scenes from the James Bond movies View to a Kill (1985) and Die Another Day (2002) were shot on Jökulsárlón. In the second movie, a car chase took place on the frozen lagoon.
