Gerðuberg is such a beautiful belt of basalt columns in the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The highest columns are ca 10-14 meters. The basalts are very even, 1-1,5 m. It is one of the longest basalt column belts in Iceland.
People tend to drive passed it, but it is so worth a visit to see it up close. Following road 54 on Snæfellsnes going west turn right on a gravel road opposite road 567. There is a sign by the road indicating Gerðuberg. It is only a couple of km drive to the rock and the road leads almost directly to it. There are 2 parking spots.
People go rock-climbing in Gerðuberg.
Directions: 46 km away from the town of Borgarnes.
