While certainly not prominent or high in elevation, Hraunhafnartangaviti lies at the far northern end of Rifstangi, the northernmost point on mainland Iceland, just 2.5 km shy of the Arctic Circle at a location of 66°32'11" Norður/North by 16°01'36" Vestur/West. The only part of Iceland north of the Arctic Circle is the island of Grímsey, which is bisected by the Arctic, and lies north of Ólafsfjörður. Hraunhafnartangi is also the location of the burial mound of Saga Age character Þórgeir Hávarsson, who killed 14 enemies before being struck down in battle.
