Stones and Seals
Vatnsnes is a peninsula that juts into Húnaflói (Hunt Bay) in northern Iceland. The waters of Miðfjörður surround the peninsula on the west while Húnafjörður meets the peninsula on the east. This region is home to one of the largest seal colonies in Iceland. A stone hut lies at Ósar, on the eastern side of the peninsula, for seal watching.
Geological features in this area include Borgarvirki, a volcanic plug used as a fortress in the Sagas of Icelanders, as well as Hvítserkur, a 15 m high basalt rock formation near the eastern shore of the peninsula.
