Urðarhólar

A delightful short walk from Afrétt in the innermost part of Borgarfjörður Eystri takes the wanderer to Urðarhólar; idyllic scenery with hilly terrain and small ponds, rich birdlife and colorful view of the mountaintops. The marked trail is 3 km. But should you wish to extend it, there is much to see!

Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture.
