Probably nothing inspires quite like the view from the top a cliff because the often long and steep hike is forgotten as soon as we glimpse the world from atop where we rest, birdlike, drinking in the scenery and ready to spread our wings. Join us on a tour of some of the most incredible cliffs around the world.
According to Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary, a cliff is “a very steep, vertical, or overhanging face of rock, earth, or ice.” The term comes from the Middle English word “clif”, which is derived from the Old High German “klep” and the Old Norse “klif”. The latter is interesting because to this day, some of the most spectacular cliffs have names inspired by Norse mythology.
