Hvítserkur troll rock

Hvítserkur troll rock sits just off the shore of the Vatnsness peninsular in North Iceland. Hvítserkur has the appearance of a drinking dragon. It is an ancient volcano plug. It is possible to walk out to the troll rock at low tide.


The translation of Hvítserkur is “White Shirt”. All the sea bird shit which covers most of the rock give it its name. The masses of white shit give it its black and white appearance.
