The zen of Stafsnes – The hidden beach

The zen of Stafsnes – The hidden beach

The walking track to Stafsnes, a beautiful hidden beach on Heimaey. Stafsnes beach is peacefully nestled in a cove behind the impressive folded cliffs of Blátindur. It’s almost like Hawaii – but without the palm trees. It can be blissfully sheltered – and wind-free! – and significantly warmer than the rest of the island. On the way you’ll pass by the little house on the giant plug.

The walking track to Klif – The beacon rock

The walking track to Klif – The beacon rock

The scrambling track to Klif, with ropes down the slope and a beacon of light on the top. You can haul yourself up this stunning cliff along ropes and chains attached to the upper parts. That may sound a bit discouraging, but it’s actually a lot of fun, not as difficult as it looks, and well worth the effort. There’s also that incredible view of a multitude of jumbled rocks.

The walking track to Blátindur – The dazzling heights of Dalfjall

Blátindur is the imposing peak rising up above Herjólfsdalur, beyond the daunting peaks of Dalfjall on the island of Heimaey. It takes a bit of effort to scramble up there, but you’ll be rewarded with some truly jaw-dropping views. Including Blátindur casting its mighty shadow majestically into the bowl of Herjólfsdalur, if you go up in the afternoon.
