From Hesteyri over the Kjaransvik Pass. The route lies along the edge of Innri-Hesteyrarbrun and then follows the cairns to the pass. It is also possible to turn off on the way and proceed through the Fljotsskard Pass to Cove Fljotavik.

An easy route lies up the Hesteyri Valley along River Hesteyri to Latrar on Cove Adalvik.

The hillock Hofdi offers a good view over the abandoned hamlet and its surroundings.

The route over the so-called Gotuhjalli along the coast at the foot of Mt Nongilsfjall leads to Eyrar and from there a clear path continues over the Stadarheidi Moorland to the abandoned farm Saebol on Cove Adalvik.
