Annual fireworks in mid-August in southwest Iceland
Fireworks show at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in Iceland
Every year in the middle of August, a large firework show is held in the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon in south-west Iceland. The show is hosted by the volunteers of the Search and Rescue Team (SAR) in Höfn, Björgunarfélag Hornafjarðar and the earnings go to benefit the SAR team and volunteers which for example rescue tourists during the year.
The show attracts many visitors of this spectacle every year. The glacier lagoon becomes the venue for a huge, impressive light show for nearly an hour.
The tickets can either be bought in the evening right at the lagoon, or in advance (for example at one of the gas stations in the area).
In the evening, the queue can get quite long, which is why it is can be worth to purchase the tickets in advance.
