If you’ve ever wondered where you would hide during a zombie apocalypse, look no further.
If you’ve ever wondered where you would hide during a zombie apocalypse, look no further. The internet has found the perfect spot for doomsday preppers to survive any end-of-days scenario. Just off the coast of Iceland, this isolated lighthouse atop a 120-foot-high rock is the ideal place to escape to — provided you have the right transportation.
Þrídrangaviti translates to “three rocks.” On the highest pillar sits the lighthouse, known as Háidrangur, or High Rock. Located in the west, the attraction is near the Westman Islands (Vestmannaeyjar). This famous archipelago is known as the puffin capital and offers puffin-watching tours that start in Reykjavik.
“The first thing we had to do was create a road up to the cliff,” said project director Árni G. Þórarinsson in an interview. “We got together a group of experienced mountaineers, all from the Westman Islands. Then we brought drills, hammers, chains and clamps to secure the chains.”
To accomplish this impressive feat took quite the balancing act explained Þórarinsson.
“Once they got near the top there was no way to get any grip on the rock so one of them got down on his knees, the second stood on his back, and then the third climbed on top of the other two and was able to reach the nib of the cliff above. I cannot even tell you how I was feeling whilst witnessing this incredibly dangerous procedure.”
