Wild Camping is prohibited. You can pitch your tent at the official places.
For the second section of our route, look out for cairns (pile of stones). Use your GPS to for orientation. Instead of walking down and up to the mountain Hvannadalshorn, we took "shortcuts" if the path was not too steep.
After the mountain, we hiked almost down to sea level. The official trail is again more visible. Next to the sea is another official camping ground and an emergency shelter. At Búðir it is possible to rent accommodation.
Flora & Fauna
It is possible to spot the arctic fox and also puffins among the nature reserve.
