lighthouse Hegranes

Lighthouse Hegranes (Hegranesviti) in June 2008. It is located on the peninsula of Landsendi at the end of the Skagafjörður, to the west of Sauðárkrokur in the north of Iceland. From the road 75 a path leads to the lighthouse, closed for cars. So again approx. 2 kilometres walking. Nevertheless, at the tip of the peninsula a fantastic view over the fiord and the mountains compensates for the efforts.
The lighthouse is painted yellow-orange only since 1966. Before it it was white with a red horizontal stripe.
