Hvítserkur or white shirt as it is translated to English is 15 m high basalt rock situated near the eastern shore of Vatnsnes. It is home to many sea bird species and most likely its name derives from the white guano deposited on the rock. Before arriving to Hvítserkur there is a nice café to grab a coffee, from there you can either walk the rest in 30 minutes or drive up towards the view point. We definitely recommend a stop by Hvítserkur if driving in the north of Iceland. It is even more special to see, when the sea is still, allowing the rock formation to mirror completely.
