Hamarsrétt

The Hamarsrétt sheep fold has a unique location where it stands on the beach on western Vatnsnes peninsula. The sheep fold is used in the autumn when farmers on the peninsula sort the sheep they herd from the mountain. South of Hamarsrétt is Kallhamar cliff, which name can be translated as "cliff of calling". The cliff got the title as in the old days it was used frequently to send messages or signals to nearby boats.

South of the cliff one can find the remnants of the fishermen's camp. North of the fold you will find the local community center Hamarsbúð where the annual summer festival "Bjartar Nætur" is hosted, where guests are invited to feast on great and rare meals, based on old traditions.
