At Korpudalur
  • There are plenty of beautiful hiking routes close by. It is lovely to walk up the valleys of Bakkafjall or into Tungudalur or Korpudalur valleys. Or the 15 km traditional hiking route over Álftafjarðarheiði to Álftafjörður fjord. Note that it can be difficult and hazardous to climb the steep lava cliffs to the top of the mountains. Seek local advice on where to go depending on your hiking skills and available time. 
  • Visit Hvítisandur (e. White Sands) beach opposite Flateyri village on the southern side of Önundarfjörður fjord about 5 km from Korpudalur HI Hostel. The beach compares visually to the best beaches in Europe, but a bathing suit may not be the most sensible clothing at this particular latitude!
  • Flateyri village, about 10 km from Korpudalur, is a charming Icelandic fishing village. The fishing industry has always been vital for the villages in the Westfjords, and in Flateyri the tradition of fisheries has successfully been linked to tourism through sea angling that attracts sport anglers from all over the world.
