Rauðfeldsgjá Gorge in Iceland

Arnarstapi, Iceland
17 Kudos
Rauðfeldsgjá Gorge is a magnificent gorge in Mountain Botnsfjall in the Snæfellsnes Peninsula in the western Iceland. The gorge looks like a chasm cut vertically by a knife in the distance. Green turf covered on black volcanic ash around the mountain looks like this gorge is a perfect setting for any fairy tale story or perfect backdrop of scenes in the Game of Thrones (actually a lot of scenes of the Game of Thrones were filmed in Iceland). The gorge is easy to reach from the Highway 54 (just a minute or two) and there is a gravel parking lot. It needs a few minutes of slightly uphill hike to reach to the gorge. Once you go into the chasm, there is a small creek that you need to cross through stepping stones. Then you are right into a neatly carved vertical abyss and you are completely surrounded by this mysterious volcanic mountain. It was a great place to enjoy wonder of Icelandic nature. When I visited, there was no one around, but a sheep was watching me. Because of this majestic setting, the sheep even looked like a divine messenger.
