    Sveifluháls Mountain Rig with Lake Kleifarvatn in the backgroun

    Sveifluháls is one of the largest multi-summit hyaloclastite ridges in the Geopark A lava flow formed it in a eruption in the year 1151 AD. In that year a 25 km long fissure opened obliquely across the Reykjanes peninsula. It is interesting for its variety of hyaloclastite formations; layered tuff, breccia and pillow lava. The rocks bear witness to interaction between magma, glacier ice and water. Sveifluháls or Austurháls is 395 m high palagonite rigg in Reykjanesfjallgarð, west of Kleifarvatn. Steep hammers are down to Kleifarvatn. On the south and east site of the neck are high geothermal areas mainly at Krísuvík. The highest peaks at Sveifluháls are Hellutindar, Stapatindar og Miðdegishnúkar.

    Nátthagi Wally with Stórihrútur Mountain in the back - Icelan

    The winter is coming in Reykjanes and the first snowflakes have covered the mountain tops. I really love this time of the year when you have good contrast between the Mountain tops and the Lowland so I went out with my Drone to see how it looked like. The mountain in the end of the Nátthagi walleye is Stórihrútur and it is next to Fagradalsfjall. This view is in Reykjanes Peninsula Langihryggur Mountain is to your right and Borgarfjall to the left

    Lighthouse Gerðistangaviti in Vatnsleysuströnd and the ruins o

    Gerðistangaviti of Atlagerðistangaviti as some say the name is was built in 1886, but rebuilt in 1927. The lighthouse is 6 m high and is a white light that runs for solar energy. Gerðistangaviti is located at Atlagerðistanga and was built to direct shipping routes between Keflavik and the ports of the Inner harbors and boats to shore at Stakksfjord. Atlagerði is in the land of Ásláksstaðir which is the mother earth of this district. The town marked the beginning of Geriðistanga, but on that promontory is the Gerðistangaviti. To the west of Gerstangi is Álasund or Álfasund. These names have been culturally different, but the Narfakots brothers who lived with the lighthouse and guarded it for decades had heard no other name in the channel than Álfasund. The couple Ingimundur Ingimundarson b. 1837 and his wife, Sigríður Þorkelsdóttir b. 1845. lived in Atlagerði. Ingimundur was the first keeper of the Atlagerðisvita, with the same terms as the Narfakots brothers. Ingimundur pursued the sea along with landfall. He had no land use and paid land debt to Ásláksstaða. Ingimundur and Sigríður were the last inhabitants of Atlagerði.

  • Frozen Grænavatn Lake at Grænavatnseggjar in the morning sun

    Frozen Grænavatn Lake at Grænavatnseggjar in the morning sun

    Grænavatn lake is a volcanic crater that got its name from its unusual green color. The name translates to 'Green Lake’, and as it suggests, the lake is dyed a seafoam green due to the amount of Sulphur in it, as well as its surprising depth of 45 meters (148 ft). The closer to the center of the feature, the more intense the green. The lake is rather small, and should take around 20 minutes to walk around. However, for a small the lake the depth is unusually deep: Roughly around 45 meters. Grænavatn is a hydrothermal explosion crater. It erupted only allogenic material, which forms about a 10 m thick layer above the lake level along the south of the crater rim, and spread over the surroundings with diminishing block size with distance. It was followed by a smaller crater forming a recess in the east of the lake. This one produced a sheet of welded lava spatter, which is thickest along the eastern crater rim Due to its unusual nature and color, the lake has been a source of folklore stories throughout the centuries. Only as recently as the middle of the 16th century an odd creature was spotted coming from the lake.

    Djúpavatn Lake with a view to Lækjarvellir valley and mountain

    Djúpavatn Lake is a 0.15 km² lake south of Trölladyngju and Soga on Reykjanes peninsula, 195 meters above sea level. Its deepest part is 16.7 m and it is partly a crater like Grænavatn on Vesturháls and Arnarvatn on Sveifluháls. The environment of this water is extremely beautiful and peaceful. There is a lot of char in the water but it is rather small. It was considered fishless until the char of Thingvallastofn was released in it around 1960. Every year a considerable amount of trout are released into the water and a fishing hope for good all summer

  • Untouched nature of the Icelandic Highlands – Iceland

    Untouched nature of the Icelandic Highlands – Iceland

    This shot is taken from Jökulkvísl and we are looking at the river Glacier river Tungnaá and the Mountains Stakihnúkur, Hnausa and Snjóalda in the Highlands of Fjallabak Nyrðri . The Highlands of Iceland (Icelandic: hálendið) are a sparsely inhabited plateau that covers most of the interior of Iceland. They are situated above 400–500 metres (1300–1600 feet) and are mostly an uninhabitable volcanic desert, because the water precipitating as rain or snow infiltrates so quickly into the ground that it is unavailable for plant growth. This results largely in a surface of grey, black or brown earth, lava and volcanic ashes. A few oasis-like areas, such as Herðubreiðarlindir near Askja, are found only in proximity to rivers. Most of the numerous glaciers, such as Vatnajökull, Langjökull and Hofsjökull, are also part of the Icelandic Highlands. Vegetation is only found on the shores of the glacier rivers. There is also the danger of glacier runs. Some of the most interesting parts of Iceland with volcanic activity are to be found in the Highlands, such as Landmannalaugar and the region around Askja and Herðubreið.
