Gerðuberg Cliffs-a unique place in Iceland

Gerðuberg Cliffs are a really impressive formation of basalt columns located in The Snӕfellsnes Peninsula. Those were formed after an eruption that happened thousands of years ago.

The entire place looks like a wall made out of basalt columns that are over a kilometer long. The columns are 14 meters tall and almost 2 meters wide.

The formation of columns is a very interesting process.  The perfect shape was given by the rivers of lava that drowned from the volcano and were cooled by the ocean’s cold waves.

The combination of hot lava and cold waves gave the cliffs this perfect geometrical appearance. This place is unique as there are not so many places in the world where you can see such geological formations. People usually compare them to a fortress wall.
