Vaðalfjöll, the mountains above Bjarkalundur, and Bjartmarssteinn are beautiful and special rock formations that you can't find in many other places. People in Reykhólar believe that Bjartmarssteinn has something to do with elves, also referred to as the hidden people, and stories say that it is their trading post in Breiðafjörður.

Geothermal spring path

The hiking path to the geothermal hot spring Einreykur is really fun and educatonal to walk. The hiking trail starts at the swimming pool and you head towards east. the inhabitants of Reykhólar have put boardwalks over the wetlands so that you can walk through the area with dry shoes. The wetlands and the ocean, at low tide, is a paradise for bird watchers. Many species gather around in the area in search for food. You could even find bird watching sheds along the hiking trail.
