If you are looking for things to do tomorrow, Saturday, you can choose from several great events. There's the Reykjavík Pride Parade in downtown Reykjavík, and in North Iceland the Great Fish Dat Dalvík, but if you are in the south or south-east you should definitely head over to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.

The highlight of the summer in Vatnajökull National Park is the 30-minute fireworks display at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in August. The show is a collaboration between the local Iceland Search and Rescue teams and tour operators.

Seeing the spectacular scenery and the floating icebergs in the lagoon lit up by fireworks is a not-to-be-missed unforgettable experience.

This year the event will take place on August 11 at 23:00. The 1,500 ISK entrance fee goes to support the all-volunteer ICE-SAR.
