Based on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, you’ll find the dramatic basalt towers of Gerduberg rising from the plain.

An impressive wall of beautiful basalt columns, Gerduberg is the perfect place to witness these stunning formations first-hand. Created by the cooling of lava, these pillar-like columns are between 12-14 metres high and 1-1.5 metres wide, standing together to form unique geometric patterns in the cliff.

Students will have the chance to learn more about this incredible geological structure, as well as admire West Iceland’s cliff-top views.
