Lake Lagarfljót was under ice for few weeks this winter but now the sun and wind have melted it. The spring is almost there, but nights of frost and wind can make sculptures on the information boards by the lake. Hopefully the wyrm monster was not to cold this winter and will soon raise his humps above the surface.
One morning last week those who drove by Lake Lagarfljot could see mystical lines on the surface in the upper part of the lake. Lines like these often appear in springtime but nobody knows why it appears. Maybe it has something to do with our Wyrm Monster.
In autumn 2013 a team from French-Canadian TV producers visited the region of the Lagarfljot wyrm monster. The interview many people in search of the truth about the Lagarfljotsormur, this monster that has been seen since 1345 in the lake Lagarfljot in East-Iceland. Here you can see a trailer for this episode.
The video that Hjortur Kjerulf made of some phenomen in the river by his farm is and evidence of the real wyrm monster. This is the verdict of the truth committee (13 members) that the municipality Fljotsdalsherad did establish to analyze the footage from February 2012 that millions of people have been watching on Youtube since then. Hjortur Kjerulf was rewarded for having captured the wyrm monster on his camera with half a million Icelandic kronas (500.000 ISK). The municipality did promise that amount as a reward for a real photo or film of the wyrm monster already in 1997. Nobody has until now been able to collect that reward. But Hjortur Kjerulf did not only make one footage of the wyrm monster. Here you can watch another footage made few days after the first occurance.
Yesterday this picture was taken from Klifá sightseeing place. This movement in the surface of Lagarfljót look suspicious and reminds us of descriptions from last year of three humps, one larger then others, rising above the surface and then slowly disappearing again.
The mysterious lake Lagarfljót appears different everyday. Some days it reflects the red sky while others the dark grey-brownish color of the glacier water hides the creatures of the lake. And in February and March we can expect the lake to be covered with ice, but no one dares to go skating. It might be related to the wyrm monster.
As has often been mentioned on this website there are many sightings of mysterious movements or phenomens on or in the Lagarfljot lake. Is it the wyrm or some other monsters? Usually the eye-witnesses don’t have their camera by hand. But sometimes they have, just like Hjortur Kjerulf in February 2012. And here is a link to a new footage taken in February 2013 of some mysterious movements on the monster lake.
Jeremy Wade was one of those who visited Lagarfljot region last summer after having heard about the lake monster in the world news. He spent some time trying to catch our wyrm and of course he dropped by at Hjörtur Kjerulf’s home and got good advice and description. This episode in the 5th season of River Monsters is called Legend of Loch Ness and will go out on Animal Planet US on 27th May.
