Skálanes, a nature and heritage centre, on the south coast of Seyðis­fjörð­ur. In summer the centre provides services to tourists. Skála­nes­bjarg cliffs are home to thousands of sea birds. 47 different species go through there every year and 40 species nest there annually. At Skálanes there is a major eider duck nesting colony. The Skála­nes­bjarg cliff is also unique in a geological sense as it contains plutonic rock that has altered the surrounding stone, resulting in a veritable flora of zeolite. The most common mammals in the area are reindeer, fox, mink and field mice. Beneath the cliffs are abundant fishing grounds and different whale species can routinely be observed from the edge of the cliff.
