Once in Bolungarvik I walked into in empty restaurant which didn’t look like it was open. But soon after I walked in someone came and I was able to get a nice lunch and a beer.
Although I had seen a few waterfalls along while riding along the coast and many more big ones on the other days in Iceland I decided to check out the Tungudalur waterfall. This waterfall is long and doesn’t have one big drop but as it is running down the hill side it has multiple drops. You can walk up along the waterfall to the top. I started to head up but only got about half way. It is a lot further up than it looks and after already riding and walking up to the troll seat I was too pooped to continue.
Unfortunately I didn’t see any arctic foxes, but saw lots of birds and some amazing cliffs - some are around 500m rising straight up from the water.
There are no facilities in this reserve and the walks were very steep in parts. I went with a tour which provided lunch for us and besides our small group there were only a few other visitors and multi-day hikers around.
