4 People Admiring Gerðuberg Basalt Columns on Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

The best way to fully appreciate the Gerðuberg basalt columns is to get close to them. The hexagon-shaped columns range in height from 40 to 46 feet and average about five feet wide. There is a path at the bottom of the cliff so you can walk along and admire this work of nature from the Tertiary period (2.6 to 66 million years ago).
