Right by the village, the legally protected hill of Alfaborg, which the "fjord of Borg," Borgarfjordur eystri, is named after, rises about 30 m high. Accessed by an easy trail and with an observation point on top, Alfaborg is home to the queen of the Icelandic elves. In addition, Borgarfordur has numerous stories of relations between its elfin and human residents. Many places are connected with elves and "hidden people," including the church of the elves kirkjusteinn: a huge, appropriately shaped rock in Kaekjudalur valley.
