Basalt cliff, Snæfellsnes, Iceland
Lóndrangar is the name given to the steep cliffs on the coast of Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland. While they were created long ago from violent volcanic activity, they’re now one of the most peaceful refuges in Europe.
Cliffs of Itzurun, Zumaia, Spain
The Cliffs of Itzurun can be found rising over the rocky shores of Zumaia in Spain. The grassy cliffs make for a safe retreat from the layered, fossil-like rock formations below. That’s what makes it one of the most popular destinations for photographers in Spain.
Ponta de São Lourenço, Madeira, Portugal
Found on the peaceful island of Madeira, the cliffs of Ponta de São Lourenço are a preserved piece of natural beauty. Their rough terrain has made them uninhabited by people. But that only makes their astonishing views even more amazing.
Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland
Located in Northern Ireland, the Giant’s Causeway is the fascinating result of years of volcanic activity. Smooth rocks line the coast while wide cliffs reach for the sky. Striking features lie around every corner and practically beg to be explored by guests.
Rogaland Cliffs/Pulpit Rock, Norway
The country often referred to as an eldorado for climbers, Norway is the home of the jutting Rogaland Cliffs. These cliffs are a haven for cliff climbers, mountain climbers, and ice climbers. Visit Sandnes, Norway for an exhilarating cliff experience.
White Cliffs of Dover, United Kingdom
The UK’s White Cliffs of Dover are one of the most unique cliff formations in Europe. Their stark white color allows them to be seen all the way across the channel in France. And many types of birds make their homes in hollowed-out parts of the cliffs’ chalk walls.
Étretat Cliffs, France
Resting on the northwestern coast of France, the Étretat Cliffs are a true natural wonder. They are most commonly known for the three arch formations that have formed off the side of the cliffs. And it should come as no surprise that they inspired work from French artist Claude Monet.
Fira, Oia, Imerovígli and Firostefáni all form “Caledra’s eyebrow”, (it seems it is called Caldera’s eyebrow) the beautiful cliffs on Santorini, Greece. Houses and resorts cascade down the cliffs creating an amazing sight in itself. Together, they make a breathtaking scene that can truly only be found in Europe.
Blue Grotto, Malta
From its crystal blue waters to its rocky cliffs, Malta’s Blue Grotto is a picturesque escape for photographers, boaters and sightseers. Take a boat around Blue Grotto and try to spot one of the area’s only habitants: the island lizards.
