Our Luxury camp in Hornvik Bay

 

Hornvik Bay is truly the gem of Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. This big bay is home to roughly six million sea birds in the summer in two of the biggest bird cliffs in the North Atlantic. This is the kingdom of the Arctic fox that roams the mountains and the sand beaches in search for food.

 After Hornstrandir were abandoned in the 40's, the nature has ruled the land. With no roads or domestic animals, the area has been taken over by the wild flora and millions of sea birds. Then of course the protected arctic foxes. 

Mt. Kálfatindar offers great climb to the top on a good trail all the way

There are many beautiful hiking routes out of Hornvik Bay that makes our camp a very strategic destination to enjoy the best that the area has to offer. The combination of the wild landscape from mountain tops to the sea, the solitude and the abundnace of wildlife really makes this area very unique in Iceland.
