The estate is characterized by grassy hills with moorland in between.The hills give the observer panoramic view of the beautiful mountain circle of Hornafjörður, from Öræfajökull in the west to Horn in the east. The birdlife at Dilksnes  has great variety, especially in the wetland and marshes around Hornafjörður.
