is situated between the precipices Hornbjarg in the east and
Haelavikurbjarg in the west. The
nearest cove further east is Latravik with the lighthouse, and to the
west is Haelavik. The
abandoned farm Horn is in a short valley on the eastern side of the
Hornvik cove and in the lowland area the farm Hofn.
The third abandoned farm, furthest west, is on a synonymous cove,
Rekavik. Streams and brooks
cascade down the steep hills and through gorges creating quite a few
waterfalls on their way to the lagoon-like estuary Hafnaros.
A day of walking in this area is well spent.
A prayer chapel stood at Hofn in the past.
Nowadays there is a camping site on the property.
In 1904 the forth farm called Baldurshlein was built in the
slopes below the peak called Jorundur.
From farm Rekavik bak Hofn to Valley Hvannadalur across the steep
slopes of Mt Rekavikurfjall, over pass Atlaskard, over Skalakambur to
cove Hloduvik and Haelavikurbjarg.
It is also possible to head straight for pass Atlaskard from the
farm Hofn over pass Hafnarskard to the Veidileysa Bay in the Jokulfiords
Area. The route along the
Hafnaros lagoon continues over pass Kyrskard to the lighthouse on cove
farm Horn lies a route to Valley Yztidalur and onwards on the edge of
the precipice across Mt Midfell and high in the slopes of Valley
Middalur to Mt Kalfatindar.
