This is a lovely stop on the road around Hvalfjörður. Hvalfjarðareyri (English: Whale Fjord Spit) is common land and as such open to all. There is a small automated lighthouse at the end of the spit, and along the western shore of the spit you can sometimes find spherulites, small, purplish round rocks, often stuck together in clusters. Most are under 2 cm in diameter and while they don’t possess the showy beauty of crystals, they still make for cool souvenirs, especially the clustered ones. It’s a nice hike from the end of the road to the lighthouse and back.
