Galtarviti

Galtarviti is in a creek called Keflavík and is situated between Súgandafjörður and Skálavík. The only thing you see when you look westwards is open ocean and sometimes fishing boats and ships pass by. There is no road to the area so the only possible way is to travel there is by sailing, hiking or during wintertime on snowmobile. The hike to Galtarviti can be a difficult trip. Please talk to the people at the tourism information center or ask the locals where it's best to go.
