  • Hvitserkur is a pile of basalt 15 m off the eastern coast of Vatnsnes peninsula in northwestern Iceland. The rock has two holes in the base, which gives it the appearance of a dragon that's drinking. The base of this Hill was reinforced with concrete to protect the sea. Several species of birds, such as gulls and fulmares, live on Hvitserkur and its name ("white shirt" in Icelandic) comes from the color of guano (droppings) deposited in its rocks. To access the beach route is difficult and risky.
