Vatnsdalshˇlar mounds

Vatnsdalshˇlar is a group of large and small grassy gravel mounds, formed in a gigantic landslip near the end of the last ice-age. In Vatnsdalshˇlar the last execution in Iceland was enforced, when two people were executed for murder on the 12th of January 1830. A short distance from the road a chairn marks the spot.
