Danger in Reykjanes
The quiet peninsular of Reykjanes was always though of as the quiet lamb of Iceland’s mid-Atlantic riff. The colourful geothermal mud-pots at Seltun were once a relaxing picnic area with only the occasional explosions of the Queen’s hole. Now there are areas that are being closed to the public because the bubbling has become so explosive lately. The Reykjanes peninsula is a UNESCO Global Geopark.
Everyone knows the danger of standing on the edge of a cliff. Well at Krýsuvíkurberg – a well known bird cliff in the area – they have warned of a massive fissure. There are not many things that can put a crack in a cliff – think about that for a while.
