* We paddle for one hour along the coast, admiring the spectacular surroundings, as far as **Bleiklindi**, a small harbour named after a rare sample of wild lime tree which grew directly above the jetty. It is a very peculiar plant as, unlike all other plants, its leaves turn yellow in spring and green in autumn.
* We then reach the small **Holmo peninsula**, where Viking burial grounds dating back to the late Iron Age have been found.
