About
Ljósastapi is a rock pillar standing in the sea on the eastern side of Vopnafjördur. Its shape reminds one clearly of an elephant, and is an impressive sight.

Cool rock, visible from the road. Looks like an elephant from several angles. Path is no picnic however you will get wet and muddy if that is your thing.

There is no sign for the Elephant, but if you get a map at the information center you can find it. It's out of town, down a gravel road.
