The rich bird life of the North, distributed over widely varying habitats, displays a diversity seldom surpassed in Iceland. Wetlands are important as a habitat for many Icelandic breeding species, and of the Icelandic wetlands which are famed for rich bird life, several of the most renowned are in North West Iceland.
A four hours round trip to the top of our beautiful mountain Spákonufell is suitable for everyone that likes nature. In a clear day the view from the top is unbelievable and well wort the effort. Sign the guestbook up there while listening to the story of Thordis the fortuneteller, who was the first settler in the area. On the way up we will stop at one of the hidden peoples homes.
An hours walk on Spákonfellshöfði is an experience that brings you close to the unspoiled nature. Spákonufellshöfði, with all its history and hidden people, is a protected area since 1981. The view over the Húnaflói bay and the mountains on the other side is unique, specially on a calm summer night.
