Fontur or Langanesfontur, the outermost point of the Langanes peninsula, with high, sheer cliffs. Many ships had been wrecked nearby, the first lighthouse erected in 1910. Near the lighthouse is a rift in the cliffs, Eng­elska­gjá (“The English gorge”), where shipwrecked English sailors are said to have managed to climb up. However, all but the captain died of exposure on way to the nearest farm. A cross marks the spot.
