Explore this area while on a self drive tour in Iceland.

Ingolfshofdi is encircled by rocky cliffs but a sand dune lies to its north west, wherefrom the cape can be reached. Part of the cape is well vegitated and it is rich with birdlife, including puffins, seafowl, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and kittiwakes. 

Ingolfshofdi has a lighthouse and ruins of an old fishingmen’s huts can be seen. The cape is named after Iceland’s first settler, Ingolfur Arnarsson, who is said to have stayed here during his first winter in the country, around the year 870 AD.
