After exploration, we continue our riding journey 
through lava field all the way until we come across The Raudholar, unique natural phenomena of red lava hills on the 
south-eastern outskirts of Reykjavik. The pseudo craters were formed when molten magma ran over wetlands about 5000 
years ago. 

The diverse red color of the rocks is due to oxidation, which is similar to the rusting of metal. After the
