We start our journey from the town of Husavik, driving along the beautiful Tjornes peninsula, with its high cliffs and green hills, towards the secluded shore of Hallbjarnarstadakambur.
The Husavik and Tjornes area, located in the Skjalfandi Bay, is famous for geological wonders and the peninsula hides some secrets of the past. The cliffs are made up of layers of fossils, with the oldest dating back 2 million years.
Beach fossils in Hallbjarnastadarkambur
We drive towards a small beach named Hallbjarnastadarkambur to get a closer look at some of the fossils. This secluded shore is home to gray stone, countless shells, prehistoric impressions and other primordial relics that represent millions of years of natural history.
After walking along the shore, we will continue our tour down a road that leads to an old fishing wharf and our next destination, Tungulending guesthouse and café. Having explored the area, we head back towards the town of Husavik and to our last stop; Lake Botnsvatn, a particularly serene and peaceful place to visit, beautifully framed with mountains. A small river named Budara flows from the mouth of the lake, through town, past the botanical garden and into the ocean at Skjalfandi Bay.
After enjoying the beautiful scenery, we will start our walk along the river back to Husavik. The town is approximately 3km from the lake. Once we have reached town, the guided tour ends and guests will have some time at their leisure. Despite its small size, Husavik has a lot to offer and guests can walk around town and down to the beautiful harbour, visit museums or enjoy a lovely cup of coffee and slice of cake.
