Hvanneyri is a small rural settlement of 270 inhabitants which is interesting to visit. The Agricultural School has been operating since 1898 and the Agricultural Museum has a great collection of farming equipment from the last century.
Ullarselið is a shop selling high quality woollen products as well as Icelandic handcrafts. There is a pretty little church built in 1905 with a very special altar. This area is a protected nesting area for Greater White-fronted Geese which are prominent in the surrounding fields during spring and autumn.
