The Mid-Atlantic ridge comes ashore on the Reykjanes peninsula. The peninsula, with its diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity, lies on major plate boundaries along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, part of the 65,000km mid-ocean ridge that encircles the earth like a seam of a baseball. Although 90% of this mountain range lies deep below the surface of the ocean, it rises above sea-level right here on the Reykjanes Peninsula, making this one of the only places on earth where it is visible. The geological formations, some of which are utterly unique, include numerous types of volcanoes in at least four separate volcanic zones, with hundreds of open fissures and faults. Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark is the second geopark in Iceland and the 66th member accepted into the European Geoparks Network in September 2015.
