Arnarstapi, a fishing village in very interesting natural surroundings, with weird basalt columns, gorges and caves by the coast, in most of which there are populous sea–bird colonies.

The most famous cliff is Gat­klett­ur (“Hole cliff”), through which the sea spouts in stormy weather. The path to the caves is reached through the harbour and goes along the top of the cliffs so one sees the caves, and the nesting birds, from above.

Walking route to Hellnar.
