Leyningshólar

Area of glacial formations (moraines and hillocks) in west Eyjafjörður. Brushwood and scattered clumps of trees there seem to be relics of a large woodland mentioned in ancient sources. Now it is a protected woodland area, and clearly recovering from erosion.

Down from the hillocks is a small lake, Tjarnargerðisvatn, and beside it an ancient grave known as Völvuleiði (“Prophetess’ Grave”).
