Hvítserkur stands just off shore in Húnafjörður,
and resembles a fantasy animal that is having a drink.
A strange sight but a very beautiful one,
Hvítserkur reaches a height of 15 meters (50 feet).
The name is probably derived from the white colour of
the bird droppings that cover Hvítserkur, White Cowl.

Hvítserkur is just off the settlement of
Haraldur hringur, Harald the Ring, who settled the
whole of the Vatnsnes.
Hvítserkur has always been covered with birds, mainly
Shags and Cormorants.
Hvítserkur is in constant danger from the sea,
and concrete has been used to strengthen the
foundations against the pounding of the Atlantic Ocean
