Description

I started my run in Ólavsvík in the middle of the village. First, I went to the "Baejarfoss" waterfall. Next, I took the sidewalk around the mountain to the town "Rift". At the Rift, you cross the main road and run along the highway or near the coast to Hellissandurn

Flora & Fauna

There are a lot of seagulls. Protect yourself :-).
Picnic tables and small rivers among the way.
