Directions to Hvítserkur

The Hvítserkur looks like a monster turned into stone. According to legend, Hvítserkur was a troll from the Westfjords, who wanted to break a church bell. He was however caught by the sun and turned into stone. The droppings of the many birds resting and brooding there give the rock its white colour

It is about 110 km from Varmahlíð to hvítserkur, a rock formation off the coast of the Vatnsnes peninsula. In Varmahlíð, take Route 1. Then after 30km take Route 716 which turns into Route 711.

After you pass Ósar Farm & Hostel, you will find a car park near the viewing platform. On the right of the parking lot, there is a fairly flat path, or you can also choose the steep path.

  • Special places we would have missed otherwise ... We have just returned from a 16-day Iceland tour. The travel book was very helpful, we had downloaded and printed. The PDF travel guide helped us to find nice places. Very organized itinerary with a road map which listed all sites. TOP!
