Raudanes peninsula

Rauðanes peninsula in Þistilfjörður is another example of exceptional natural beauty. There is a marked path which takes you along a circular route of about 7 km of easy walking. Heather moorland is the predominant type of vegetation, although there is also a fair amount of grassland. At the start of the walk, you will pass Háabjarg, a rocky outcrop 60 metres in height, whose layers of rock, built up over the centuries, are easily apparent. The extensive views from the peninsula are not to be missed.
