Ingólfshöfði, a cape on the coast 9–10 km south of Fagurhólsmýri, 76 m high, 1,200 m long and 750 m wide, birdcliffs, a shelter and a lighthouse. Hay wagon trips to the cape for tourists. A jeep–trail goes to it across sands, mud–flats and many rivers. Formerly a point–place for fishermen, though always difficult and dangerous. Named after the first settler, Ingólfur Arnarson, who spent his first winter there in 874, commemorated by a monument raised there in 1974.
