Sights

Bárðarlaug, up near the main road, was supposedly Bárður’s bathing pool, though the pond is no longer hot. Down on the shore, the cave Baðstofa is chock-a-block with nesting birds. Nearby is the head of the trail to Arnarstapi. Ancient, velvety moss-cloaked lava flows tumble east through the Hellnahraun.
