Hestfall, Hvalsvík rock formations

The gravel road No.870 leads to the peninsula Melrakkaslétta and a short drive north of Kópasker lays a parking area well marked with painted stones. Drop-off your car and take a short walk straight down to the rock formation Hestfall - but be careful as the steep cliff is cut in two pieces by a vertical fissure! On your way back walk to the shore south of the parking and you see the beautiful rocks of Hvalvík in the ocean. Please don´t try to access the beach, the waves are dangerous!

Please note this is a summer destination.
