Along route 1 from VíK to Höfn, one will come by a place called Laufskálavarda. At one point in history  a farm existed here which in the year 864 was destroyed during the first recorded eruption of the Katla volcano. After this time every traveller passing by this place for the first time, was supposed to build a stone cairn in order to gain good luck during the travel.
