The Raudanes Peninsula – Red or Reddish Point – is located about 20 miles south of the town of Raufarhofn. Raufarhofn is only about 5 miles from Iceland’s most northerly point which itself is only a couple of miles south of the Arctic Circle. A four mile hiking trail around the peninsula leads to bizarre rock formations, caves and secluded beaches.
There are 6 arches situated along its east coast, the first five of which are within ½ mile of each other. This one is the first of two arches that are very close together.
It has a span of about 20 ft and a height of about 20 ft.
