Þúfubjarg and Lóndrangar

Þúfubjarg is a large cliff of stratified palagonite on the southern side of the Snæfellsnes coast, a relic of a submarine eruption like the one that produced the island of Surtsey. At Þúfubjarg you can watch the interesting bird life, such as kittiwakes and guillemots.

Lóndrangar is the name of two rockstacks (75 m and 61 m) to its west, probably volcanic plugs left behind from the same eruption. They were first scaled in 1753. Lóndrangar was an old fishing centre and remains of camps can still be seen there. The lava area above was used to dry fish.
