The rocking stones in Oyndarfjørður


Just before you come to the village of Oyndarfjørður, there is a sign for the path down to The Rocking Stones. These are two boulders, one of which still moves. The other sits still after being wedged into position by two stone blocks.

This is an unusually beautiful place to dive and one can swim around both stones. There is a large overhang on the larger rocking stone from which you can both hear and see how the stone moves.

Diving becomes much more difficult during swells. Diving in unsettled weather is not recommended. You can dive at the stones or swim out from the harbour. Equipment can be rinsed at the harbour.

Depth: max 8 metres.
Visibility: minimum 5 metres.
