  • Looking at Falljökull and Virkisjökull Glaciers with Rauðikam

    Looking at Falljökull and Virkisjökull Glaciers with Rauðikam

    There's a reason Falljökull means the "Falling Glacier." Crashing down over hundreds of years on its way from Vatnajökull National Park to the Atlantic Ocean, it is literally a giant frozen waterfall cascading decade by decade, millimeter by millimeter in front of your eyes. It also happens to be an incredibly accessible outlet glacier. A small brook, Fallsjokulskvisl falls from the glacier and close to it are two canyons, Graenafjallsgljufur and Storalekjargljufur, also well worth checking out. Virkisjokull is an outlet of Vatnajokull glacier and thus a part of Vatnajokull National Park. At Virkisjokull glacier you can explore impressive ice formations and crevasses, take in the scenic view of the surrounding mountains and the impressive icefall, crashing down hundreds of meters. The tremendous power of glaciers as agents of landscape change can be understood when one sees the speed at which ice is able to flow. Their ability to shape and carve modern mountain chains can be seen all over the world, and their legacy spreads far wider, into landscapes now totally devoid of permanent ice, both upland and lowland. The BGS Virkisjökull Glacier Observatory was established in 2009, and new equipment has been installed each year to monitor the key components of this glaciated catchment, namely climate, ice dynamics, landscape change, hydrology and groundwater.

    Reykjavík. Capital of iceland

    Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. It has a latitude of 64°08' N, making it the world's northernmost capital of a sovereign state, and is a popular tourist destination. It is located in southwestern Iceland, on the southern shore of Faxa Bay. With a population of around 123 300 (and over 216 940 in the Capital Region), it is the heart of Iceland's cultural, economic and governmental activity. Reykjavík is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland, which, according to Ingólfur Arnarson, was established in AD 874. Until the 19th century, there was no urban development in the city location. The city was founded in 1786 as an official trading town and grew steadily over the next decades, as it transformed into a regional and later national centre of commerce, population, and governmental activities. It is among the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world

    In the Highlands of Landmannalaugar geothermal area- #Iceland

    Landmannalaugar is a place in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve in the Highlands of Iceland. It is at the edge of Laugahraun lava field, which was formed in an eruption around the year 1477. It is known for its natural geothermal hot springs and surrounding landscape. Landmannalaugar is a truly rare area, both geologically and aesthetically is made up of windswept rhyolite mountains, a rock type that creates a full spectrum of dazzling colors on the mountainside. Shades of red, pink, green and golden yellow all change their tone, keeping in movement with the sun rays and creating an area of wilderness that resembles no place else on earth. Landmannalaugar is primarily known for its natural geothermal baths, hence its name "The People's Pools". For centuries, Landmannalaugar has served as an area of shelter and respite for weary travelers who use these soothing springs as a means to relax after tiring excursions.
