Hlöðuvík with Álfsfell in the center

descent to Búðir

The descent to Búðir​​, the scariest of all ! Totally discouraged with wet weather.

From the valley floor, overlooking the descent just completed with my faithful companion !

Hlöðuvík campsite

My tent on the campground Hlöðuvík at the beach.
It is possible to sleep in Búðir ​​( with showers if I remember well ) but it is much less nature and surroundings were not very clean when I was there.
