- Off the beaten track
The most beautiful sites are often situated off the beaten track. Even though leaving route No. 1 for a tour of the Vatnsnes peninsula does not require a big detour, it is nonetheless an opportunity to see some fabulous landscapes.
I believe that, as for everyone who sees it for the first time, Hvitserkur is the most impressive of its sites: a huge rock with double arches rising out of the sea, like two trolls that have been surprised by the sun and petrified.
Yet I have only seen this rock once, lacking time during my second visit to the Vatnsnes peninsula : I had to turn back before I could see it. The road is not very good and progress is slow, so make sure you allow enough time for the trip!
