Stapavík by Héraðsflói


about an hour’s walk through beautiful nature along the lake (bay) Selfljot to the ocean.

the road is flat, mostly rocky, there are several streams, but all of them are bridged, so you can manage the road without any problems.

you can see the driftwood on the birches, I can only guess where it came from.

There is an old winch in the staple that was used to unload the boat. in later years the boats could no longer anchor at the shore because of the silted-up sand.

there are sea lice in the area that serve as a home and refuge for seabirds.

Down below the winch is the beach, which you can reach by following the slopes.
