Basalt Rock Formations
There are many places in Iceland that have these type of rock formations. These particular ones are in the town of Hofsós. Hofsós, with a population of about 200 individuals, is located 37 km east from Sauðárkrókur. Their port is one of the oldest trading ports in northern Iceland dating back to the 16th century. I would have spent more time here but it was raining and was very, very windy. On the opposite side of the beach there are 2 wonderful timber houses. It's a very easy stop, right on the main road, so put it on your must-see list.
