Vatnsnes is a mountainous peninsula in the north. It is home to diverse wildlife, and it features one of the largest and most accessible seal colonies in Iceland, where seals have been protected for many years. The seals are very tame so it is a simple matter to photograph them at close quarters and observe their apparently lazy lifestyle. The area offers a beautiful environment, endowed with many pearls of nature, such as Hvítserkur and Borgarvirki, as well as some renowned historical trails and sites.
