The Elephant Rock

Nature is sublime, even in details such as this rock formation located in Heimaey, the largest island in the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago in Iceland. Formed by volcanoes, these islands have formats, at least, curious. One is a rock formation similar to that of an elephant body and trunk.

Basalt rock even mimics the wrinkles of the elephant’s skin, an extraordinary coincidence created 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. The elephant rock is on the largest island of Vestmannayejar and is one of the most visited attractions by (few) tourists.
