In the same region, and a few kilometres away, the failure of the Eldgja shows us a barrel, which in terms of its form reminds me in part to the Ordesa, Aragon, but with the peculiarity of the volcanic material covering it and the Green mantle that paints the skirts of their stylized walls. Do do the waterfall of? f? rufoss, which enters the River Ny? ri in the fissure, no longer a haven ideal for contemplation and the emerald waters delight that break washes and moberg, creating two levels in his fall before opening step through the river basin that appears at its base. And all this is only a fraction of what was originated by the eruptions of the Eldgja, thousand years ago; a cataclysm geological I influenced in the mountainous terrain of much of the island and it had an impact on the atmosphere and climate of the northern hemisphere and particularly in Europe. Despite everything, and in contrast to the very meaning of the name of the island, the land of ice, Iceland only holds 12% of the territory under its icy mantle. Does circumstance that does not prevent him boast of possessing the largest glacier in Europe, the Vatnaj? kull, accessible through Skaftafell, and in whose national park, do do their cirques, moraines and languages are expanded, creating spectacular places such as Lake J? kulsarl? n, with lots of icebergs adrift.
Say that the average ice thickness is around 400 m, reaching 1 km even in some places, it gives us an idea of the magnitudes of this ice cream area, which covers more than 8100 km2 of surface. But as always and apart from the figures, integrated into the environment is its greatest attraction. Trekking, amounting from Skaftafell camping area to the peak of Kristinartindar, offers a beautiful view of one of the major languages, which borders in its entirety, to gain height to access the beauty of his circus. Waterfall Svartifoss, between columns of basalt, will surprise us in their journey, and if we are lucky and it’s sunny, we can see the Rainbow that decorates its base. In summary, describe the feeling of freedom and discovery that offers Iceland, the youngest country in the world as well as its landscapes alive, and remote is not working of single lines, if not many books and good words. Travel to their land here or There, it will open a world of possibilities that will make us think openly, that there are still places that remind us, that you have not seen everything by much experience that has one.
