GG6 Hiking the Mountains


A beautiful two day hiking tour in the mountains of Skjálfandi Bay.

DAY 1: We leave early on Friday morning at 07:00 with a boat and head towards the mountainside, sail across the bay and go ashore in Rauðavík or Naustavík beach half an hour later. Next, we hike across the beautiful and very lonesome Víknafjöll, Cheek Mountains, over to Flatey Island Valley. The hiking path is approximately 12 km before we have to cross a river and reach the sleeping cabin. The estimated arrival time at the first destination is around 16:00. The Guide's Fish Soup will be served for starting leisure time for short walking trips and relaxation in the afternoon in the valley.

DAY 2: We leave the accommodation in the valley at 08:00 in the morning and head NNW towards the coast and beach. The path leads around 14 km alongside a beautiful river. Then a boat picks up the group and heads to Flatey Island for a short visit and a BBQ. Afterwards we head back to Húsavík passing the whale watching areas in Skjálfandi Bay. Estimated time of arrival in Húsavík this day is at 17:00.
