Description of facilities

The only camp site at Rauðisandur is operated at Melanes. It is in a beautiful green area next to sand with a great view over to the cliff Látrabjarg. There are walking paths in all directions from the camp site and you can experience the wild life and the nature.

The camp site has good facilities with toilets, showers, cooking facilities, outdoor barbeque, table, washing machine and play area.
There are many seals on the sand and you can find them all year around. Westfjords Adventures offer a trip from the camp site to the seals daily. There are many hiking trails to choose from such as a historical hike by the river Sjounda to a deserted farm. From there you can also walk on to the Skor beacon (not for those who are scared of hights). If you want a bigger challenge you can take on the mines at Surtarbrandsnamur at mountain Stalfjall.
