Forming Iceland’s southernmost point is Valahnúkur. This tuff ridge was created during a volcanic eruption about 10,000 years ago. Tourists find it irresistible to climb for dramatic views of the North Atlantic coastline. This is another attraction at the Reykjanes Global Geopark. This designation was created by UNESCO in 1998 to recognize and protect areas with “earth interest.” The network currently has 120 geoparks in 33 countries.
