The Herdísarvík inlet by Þorlákshöfn is a really interesting historic place which you can both visit during one of our RIB speed boat tours or ATV tours
Herdísarvík was formerly a mansion in Selvogur inlet but is now deserted and was declared a nature reserve in 1988. The poet Einar Benediktsson (1864-1940) used to live in Herdísarvík in the latter years of his life. He was a poet, editor, lawyer, officials and entrepreneur. He is among others famous for trying to sell the Northern Lights.
