Route 6

Arnarstapi – Hellnar

The area between Arnarstapi and Hellnar, from the sea up to the glacier, is a large lava field known as Hellnahraun. The track Neðstagata crosses the lava following the coast. Evidence of powerful natural forces is clear to see in the shape of the landscape, scoured rock faces and canyons. Kittiwakes sit on nests in the gills around Arnarstapi. The coast is a protected area with unique cliff formations.
