  • The drive to Hvítserkur is about a half hour off of Ring Road on Highway 711. It can be a bit bumpy and you have to hike down a hill to the site. There was really no parking in spring due to the road ...  more »
  • Beautiful rock formation. It is a little away from the road, but nothing dangerous. Very good pictures can be removed from the viewpoint and the physicist permitting it can be lowered to the beach where the place becomes even better with incredible postcards and a very close-up view of training.

  • Pleasant stay but is a bit run down, would be better if there's some refurbish in the rooms. Not for fussy guest. Nearby to see the rock formation,10mins drive. Great place for aurora hunting, surroun...  more »

  • The rock is not as big/high as I thought. Nevertheless, it makes a good photography subject. Lookup the tide schedule before you go. When the tide is high, you get the Hvitserkur in water, and when the tide recedes, you can walk behind it and that's how I got the sunset picture with the sun behind the rock. IMHO, sunset shooting is probably better because the sun will be shining on the rock. For dawn, it is difficult to get the sun in the right position because it depends on the timing of the year. Aside from Hvitserkur, there is not much to do in this place. I would get the sunset pictures and go somewhere else instead of staying overnight.
  • Impressive rock formation! It stood alone in the waters, making it an interesting photography subject.
  • For photographers this is a ever changing natural wonder. There are many factors involved. Time of day, tide, weather, sun and waves. My favorit is the afternoon when the sun is shining from the west and lights up the west side of the cliff. And a low tide
  • This is a beautiful natural sight. I would definitely recommend stopping here to get some pictures and to take in the scenery!
  • Great local sea stack. Very impressive.
