A historical headland & nature reserve
Ingólfshöfði is a 76 metre high headland flanked on one side by black sands and on the other, by the Atlantic ocean. This wild and beautiful nature reserve can be found to the south of the Öræfajökull glacier.
Named after the first settler, Ingólfur Arnarson, who spent his first winter there in 874, the headland is home, in the summer months, to thousands of puffins and other nesting seabirds. From 5 May to 18 August there is daily tractor hey-cart tour with local farmers.View South Iceland
