The wonderful Blábjörg Cliffs in Berufjörður in East Iceland

Hidden away within the lovely Berufjörður in East Iceland is a turquoise blue rock known as Blábjörg or Blue Cliffs.

Blábjörg cliffs are by the ocean by ring-road 1, however most individuals are unaware of this cliff and move it. In my view, it’s effectively value it to cease and have a more in-depth have a look at it, particularly on a sunny day, when the colors of the cliff are vivid.

Prime picture: Blábjörg cliffs and Mt. Búlandstindur

Blábjörg cliffs

Blábjörg is part of the Berufjarðar tuff and fashioned in a pyroclastic circulation in an enormous phreatic eruption that befell right here some 9-10 million years in the past.

There may be very quick access to Blábjörg, however it’s not simple recognizing it except you understand what you might be in search of.

Blábjörg cliffs are enormous

After I posted my images of Blábjörg cliffs on Fb individuals who stay in East Iceland did not learn about this blue rock. I first noticed it on Hit Iceland, which is a wonderful webpage, and thus went in search of it.

After I was driving on this space I observed a wierd color within the mountain above Blábjörg, like a blue vein. It’s a huge layer of ignimbrite that results in Blábjörg cliffs.

So for those who can’t discover Blábjörg search for a blue layer within the mountains.

Blábjörg cliffs

Blábjörg cliffs have been declared protected in 2012 and rightfully in order they’re a pure phenomenon.

In my picture above you possibly can see Blábjörg cliffs with the backdrop of Mt. Búlandstindur, which is a good looking pyramid-shaped mountain, 1069 meters tall.
In my view, and I do know that many individuals agree with me, Mt. Búlandstindur is amongst Iceland’s most lovely mountains, and the locals imagine that it’s got supernatural powers.

The Berufjarðartindar mountain peaks

There are extra lovely mountains in Berufjörður, extraordinary actually, and as I like superbly formed mountains then Berufjörður has develop into certainly one of my favorite fjords in Iceland. 

I by no means tire of taking a look at these wonderful mountains and pray for a transparent sky throughout my go to to the Eastfjords. However as luck has it then as a rule the dreadful Austfjarðaþoka – the Eastfjord fog tends of creeping up on me.

That is my favorite mountain in Berufjörður

However we have been very fortunate in 2020 after we drove the ring street 3 instances and it was heat and sunny virtually the entire time. So I managed to get some lovely images of the Eastfjords with a transparent sky.

My favorite mountain in Berufjörður is the mountain in my picture above. Its form someway calls to me once I drive by it and I can’t hold my eyes off it. If you go to Berufjörður test if it calls to you as effectively.

Blábjörg cliffs – I at all times see a duck once I have a look at this picture 🙂

There are such a lot of issues to see and do on this space and when a relative of mine informed me that there wasn’t a lot to see within the Eastfjords and that he largely simply drove by way of this space with out stopping I made a listing for him with all of the stops that I discover fascinating.

Because the Eastfjords are all however boring however dotted with small villages and hidden pure phenomena, one simply has to know what to search for 🙂

Have a stunning time within the lovely Eastfjords of Iceland 🙂
