Hvítserkur is an impressive, 15 meter high cliff. It protrudes out of the sea in the western part of the Huna Bay near the coast a short distance from the farm Suluvellir. The sea erosion has carved three holes through its foundations and sculptures it in the shape of a petrified monster. It is really close to the shore and huge and with nothing else around. Legend has it that the cliff was once a troll intent on destroying the Þingeyrar Church located close by. Before the troll could execute its plan, the sun rose on the horizon turning the troll into stone
