Hear the beautiful elephant Rock! That’s not Elephant Rock; that’s just Elephant Rock. On the coast of Heimaey island in southern Iceland, this basalt cliff rises. An elephant or a massive appears to be elephant dipping his trunk in the Atlantic Ocean.
The island’s name straight equates to “House Island.” It is house to 4,500 people and is tormented by a volcano. Eldfell’s eruption in 1973 ruined half of the community, but the port was preserved thanks to a fancy effort to cool the lava flow with seawater. In the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago, Heimaey is still the only inhabited island.
