Ascent Trip Report

Did this one from Hálsavatn on day 3 of my Hornstrandir backpacking trip in July, 2006. There is an abandoned road leading up from the abandoned runway that is the easiest way up to this plateau. I also hiked Straumnes and the old radar site in the same day hike from Rekavík bak Látrar.

Here are pictures from my 4 day trip to Hornstrandir. Of note: The camera had battery issues, so the date stamp in the bottom corner reset to 1/1/2002 every time I took the batteries out. Anyway, the pictures were taken in July, 2006....
