Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Day 20 - Bunárfoss, Naustahvilft, Súðavík, Valagil Waterfall, Drangsnes, Hólmavík
Day 20 was another gorgeous day! We got so lucky with the weather! So much sun!
First up we hiked up to Bunárfoss by the campground
On the way back down I wanted to take the trail through the small woods there, but there was way too much snow on the steep ground (I know it doesn't look that steep, but it was especially with the snow)
So we had to walk down by the waterfalls again
Next up was the Naustahvilft (Troll Seat) hike. This again doesn't look that steep, but it was like straight up, no switchbacks, really steep but only .5km so fairly quick
I think the "end" of the trail was somewhere up there, but again too much steep snow so we walked to the snow line here and called it good.
The whole time we were hiking, including a long break to enjoy the views, this cruise ship was coming in to dock
And a small plane landed on the runway!
Then it was off to Súðavík, the last town until the end of the fjords. They had this playground area which was pretty nice
With lots of interesting things
Then it was off to Valagil Waterfall hike at the end of that fjord. This an easy, but slightly muddy hike
The waterfall was in a canyon which was fun
Then headed out and had lunch at this viewpoint
And stopped by the seal lookout on the way past
There were lots of seals swimming around close by which was fun, but it was so windy here! At the point there is a small rock wall and I was like well it is so windy and cold I don't want to stay long, but then Raymond ducked down and you could sit and see over the wall and no wind! It was so much better!! So we sat and watched the seals and arctic terns for a bit.
Then continues on and had a break at the next viewpoint
Then it was off to Drangsnes where we were going to camp, but most of the campsite was closed off! The only place to park was behind this big warehouse building so you would just be staring at that and had no view! It felt really closed in and not nice...So we went to sit in the free hot pots on the water
And relax for a bit
Then decided to drive to Hólmavík and camp there since we had plenty of time as we got to Drangsnes fairly early. Plus that would lessen our drive the following day. I was so glad we did as the campground had much better views and was out in an open field!
After dinner we wandered down through town
And back to camp. Not the best views of the trip from a campground, but better than a metal warehouse!
Today was another good day with 13.7km walked
