Látrabjarg in The Most Dramatic Sea Cliffs in the World
Látrabjarg

Unique marine paradise… Wild and rugged, with coves and deserted sandy beaches with crystal clear water and often reachable only by sea, secluded anchorages on the background are the magnificent cliffs and mountains, sometimes with sleeping little ports where you can enjoy fresh fish caught daily, brought by the local fishermen.

 

What is a sea cliff?

 

A sea cliff is a steep rock created by erosion along a coast. The word cliff applies to any rocky escarpment, near a coast.

 

Types of cliffs

 

We can distinguish:

low cliffs (height less than 2 meters ),

medium cliffs (between 2 and 10 meters) and

high cliffs (over 10 meters). The highest cliffs in the world, Kahiwa Falls , are located in Hawaii on the Molokai Island, and they are about 610 meters high.

 

Cliff formation

 

Cliffs are formed:

  by the action of horizontal erosion on an elevated bank

 either by vertical action digging on a substrate rock

 or by a differential erosion on two types of rocks , one being more sensitive than the other. At the foot of the cliffs are usually the remains of their collapse phase in the form of piles of rocks. The importance of these clusters often depends on the sensitivity of the erosion of the rock.

 

Nesting habitats

 

Enjoy the close-up views of the beautiful sides of the rock nesting colonies, with binoculars and telescopes provided. If you someday visit a sea cliff, you can closely look and see a basking adder, while at sea, may be porpoises and dolphins. The sea cliffs provide nest sites for about 4,000 birds, including puffins, guillemots, auks and fulmars. Other birds that use this habitat include Peregrines and Ravens. Seabird populations are monitorized not to be bothered and any disturbances to the colony are minimized.

 

Visitors’ value

 

The beauty of the reserves with seabird spectacles, operational lighthouses and many sites of geological and of archaeological interest, make the sea cliffs very popular among visitors. These are major tourist attractions to enhance the flow of tourist revenue to islands and seas. If possible, you will be provided support by the local communities and you will be transported to another slower, more relaxing time.

 

As the cliffs are located along rocky coastlines, being on the top of them offers stunning and spacious views. Sea cliffs are the most beautiful parts of the seas. The array of barren rocks, the reefs and beaches serve as the best opportunities for excellent tours for a day, swimming and romantic vacations. Sea cliffs are good spots, splendid isolations for relaxation and meditation.

Látrabjarg is located in the northwest of Iceland , in the peninsula of Vestfirðir which is one of eight regions of this country, in the municipality of Vesturbyggð .

The Church of Hallgrimur in The Most Unusual Churches in the World
The Church of Hallgrimur

A church is an architectural structure designed for the sermons and religious ceremonies in Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Protestantism. The main city or monastery church is commonly called the cathedral.

Each religion has its own churches or cathedrals. A lot of years had to pass in the past until a church was built. But if it was finally constructed, it became a true architectural and cultural monument. Years passed and some of them are ruined, others are closed, but others are still visited by Christians.

All the old churches and cathedrals became amazing tourist attractions, no matter if it is decaying or not. For a lot of people these old religious buildings are saint. That’s why they come to see them not just for entertaining and photos, but also to enrich their souls, to clear their minds, and to approach God.

This building is one of the highest churches in the world and the fourth-tallest building in Iceland. The ...


The Old Geysir, Iceland in The Most Impressive Geysers on the Earth
The Old Geysir, Iceland

Geyser ( Geysir , the name of one of the sources of " Golden Ring ", from the Islandic geysa - gush) is a source periodically ejecting fountains of hot water and steam. Geysers are one of the manifestations of later stages of volcanism , and common areas of modern volcanic activity provided by hydrogeological conditions. Being an intermittent hot water spring and vapor, volcanic, throwing water at regular intervals, to the sea lifting time form of a column, a geyser occurs if the activity of a volcano is at a late stage.

 

Large assets of geysers in the world are few , but they are of a rare beauty and fascination. They are a pride and remarkable natural phenomena for the states where they are situated . No matter what shape, cone-like or like fountains, geysers are rare as they need an almost perfect balance of heat and water conditions and the right rock and channeling.

 

Best spots of geysers in the world

 

There are few best spots of geysers in the world. There are only about a thousand geysers in the world situated on some major geothermal areas with geysers force on the Earth: Yellowstone Plateau in the U.S. A. (where it is concentrated about half of all existing geysers), Iceland, New Zeeland( 58 geysers), Kamchatka, Chile, Papua New Guinea ( 38 active geysers), Indonesia( Sumatra Island – 17 geysers), Eastern Africa ( 6 geysers), China ( 10 geysers), Japan ( 4 geysers), Ethiopia and Kenya( very few).

 

Europeans first learned about the Icelandic geysers in the thirteenth century. Yellowstone geysers were far from the civilized world until of the first decade of the nineteenth century. John Colter ‘s stories were perceived as nonsense for too long time. It took more than fifty years, unless specific expedition with the participation of artists and photographers convinced people of the existence of the world's largest geyser fields in the super-giant caldera of the dormant. In 1872, Yellowstone geysers were under the protection of the world's first national park. In 1850, a missionary from R. Taylor became aware of the geysers in New Zealand. It was only in 1941 that is only recently in historical terms, has been committed by one of the last great geographical discoveries on the planet. Thegeologist T. Ustinova and the conductor Alexander Krupenin, apparently, were the first humans to set foot on the shore of the river called Geyser.

 

What threatens the geysers? How long do they live? In some parts of the world geothermal geysers are simply former constructions. In the 19th century , New Zealand North Island had five major geyser fields, which erupted about 220 geysers, now it has only 58 geysers, some of them quite small. The reasons for the disappearance of New Zealand's geysers are different : natural disasters (volcanic eruption of Tarawera, changes on the groundwater levels), the drilling for the construction of thermal power plants, flooding during the construction of hydroelectric power. The most powerful geyser on the Earth , Waimangu existed in New Zealand from 1899 to 1904. With each eruption, it threw about 800 tons of water and trapped many jet stones raised by half a kilometer high. There are even cases of death, found themselves too close to the erupting from the giant. But Waimangu stopped working due to the lower water levels in the nearby lake.

 

Geysers are valuable destinations in the world. A fascinating circuit where you can live unforgettable moments is visiting spectacular attractions such as the mysterious geysers. They offer fascinating landscapes where majestic volcanoes and impressive lava formations are found together. If you are a geyser fan, we offer a selection of the most beautiful and largest geysers in the world.
