Hvitserkur/ North Iceland

Hvítserkur is a 15 m high basalt stack along the eastern shore of the Vatnsnes peninsula, in northwest Iceland. Situated at the northern tip of the Vatnsnes Peninsula in Iceland, thousands of people travel to see the rock each year.

While some claim that it looks like a monster, majority individuals claim that it looks most like a dragon. Either way, the natural Hvitserkur rock formation evokes all sorts of human interest.

The rock already has three holes in its foundation, and the structure has been reinforced with concrete to prevent further erosion. Even in pictures, viewers can see streaks of white bird droppings that drip down the edges, giving the formation the name Hvitserkur, which means white shirt.
