Icelandic Rock Formations

Iceland

Below are a few photos from our amazing time in Iceland

 

Icelands Rock Formations

Iceland maybe famous for volcanos and glaciers but there are also some amazing rock formations. From basalt columns to lava tunnels.

 

Dimmuborgir

Dimmuborgir is one of Iceland’s most popular places to visit.

Dimmuborgir is a large area of various volcanic caves and rock formations east of Mývatn in Iceland.

The Lava Tunnel

The Lava tunnel is situated 30 minutes from Reykjavík. Walk along the path of the lava flow while viewing the breathtakingly beautiful colours of the rocks. Sometimes in winter, ice sculptures are formed inside the entrance to the cave system.

Hljóðaklettar

Hljóðaklettar, or ‘echo rocks’ are an area of basalt columns lying in various directions to create unique formations and arched caves that are known to create eerie echoes and reverberations.

Be mindful of…

The weather can change quite quickly, make sure you layer your clothes.

Food in Iceland is very expensive – make sure you plan for this.
