The rocky outcrop of Hafnarhólmi is one of the safest and best places in Iceland to observe nesting wild birds, especially puffins, kittiwakes that greet each other loudly, arctic terns, and common eiders. You can calmly walk with your children on wooden walkways directly among the nesting birds without worrying about falling hundreds of meters off a cliff, as is often the case elsewhere. Previously, it was an island, but recently a harbor was built here, and since then Hafnarhólmi has been connected to the mainland. There is also an observation post on the outcrop (for a small fee), but you probably won’t need to use it in good weather.

Hafnarhólmi is located about 7 kilometers past Borgarfjörður Eystri, still on road no. 94.
