ELEPHANT ROCK, ICELAND THE ELEPHANT SHAPED ROCK IN WESTMAN ISLANDS The Elephant Rock is a basalt rock found on the Westman Islands (Vestmannaeyjar) in Iceland. Call us crazy, but we believe it to be a petrified mythical sea elephant. Though, scientists say that the rock is a result of a volcanic eruption. Board a boat and discover the truth for yourself! TRAVEL PHOTOS FROM ELEPHANT ROCK Iceland’s Elephant Rock is an incredible rock formation found in the remote Westman Islands or Vestmannaeyjar. It is not one of those things that you need to ‘look just hard enough’ to see it but one of those sights that will have you completely astounded in a split of a second. In front of you is a petrified elephant and there is no denying it! HOW DID THE ELEPHANT ROCK FORM? To believe that the enormous rock was formed naturally is quite difficult, especially once you have been face to face with the giant elephant. But nevertheless, there are no records of an elephant ever stepping foot in Iceland so we best believe it. The Westman Islands were formed in a series of volcanic eruptions occurring under sea level. This is quite common in Iceland and its surrounding areas as the island is located right at the split between two continental plates. Subsequently, there is rather a lot of earthquakes and eruptions happening and for the locals, this is just daily life. Source : adventures.is website Photographer 📷 @samsnaps77
