The caves of Remouchamps

A substantial part of Belgium is covered by Ardennes (French: Ardenne; Dutch: Ardennen), a region of extensive forests, hills and ridges. You can do a lot of fun things there such as walking, cycling, fishing, climbing, canoeing and kayaking. What you can also do is just to enjoy beautiful nature. For instance, you may decide to visit some of the caves. We visited the caves of Remouchamps (French: Grottes de Remouchamps; Dutch: Grotten van Remouchamps) and we did not regret.

Kerið

Kerið is not just a stunning lake. It is a lake inside of a volcanic caldera (a caldera is the center of a volcano). The water is a nearly neon blue and it is surrounded by rare red volcanic rock.

The area around Kerið is not hilly anymore so it is hard to imagine that thousands of years ago this lake was an active volcano.

Skógafoss

A peculiarity of Skógafoss is that you often see a rainbow there. The waterfall looks a bit like hair of a blond Icelandic girl.

The foto makes an impression that the waterfall is small while in reality it is pretty large. There is a way to go up and to observe it from above.

Dyrholaey

Dyrholaey sounds funny to Russian speaking people since “dyrho” sounds as “a hole” in Russian and the rock does have a big hole (aka an arch) at the bottom. This natural sculpture is one of the symbols of Iceland and you should include it into your program without any doubt.

Reynisfjara

This is a world famous beach with black sand in the southern part of Iceland. No, you cannot swim here as the water is too cold. There are no tents with coctails or beer. But it is much better this way, just look at the view!

Fjaðrárgljúfur

This canyon is not as big as the Grand Canyon in the USA but it does not matter. This one is greener and somewhat more charming. The water is clean and transparent and there is a great view point.

Jökulsárlón

Jökulsárlón is a glacial lake in the southern part of Iceland. The colour of the icebergs drifting in the water surface is bright blue. This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen!

The lake is located near Vatnajökull, which is Europe’s largest glacier. The national park that includes Jökulsárlón is second-largest in Europe after Yugyd Va in Russia. Jökulsárlón keeps growing as a result of global warming.
