Drangajökull is the only glacier in the Westfjords. It is the only glacier in Iceland whose altitude in entirely below 1,000 metres. In addition to this, it is the only glacier in Iceland which is not in retreat (i.e. getting smaller). Drangajökull lies north of the Strandir region and south of the Hornstrandir nature reserve. Kaldalón, meanwhile, is a short fjord into which the glacier calves. The name literally means 'cold lagoon' and it is totally magical. It could be thought of as the Jökulsárlón of the Westfjords - although it is starkly different and visiting is a much more personal experience.
