Stapavik(N6536.17-W1357.97) // 2-3 hrs

Stapavk is an inlet once used as a harbour. From the farm Unas, which is the most eastern point in Hjaltastaaingh, there is a beautiful trail along the river Selfljt and down the the sea. Along the way you will pass the ruins of a hut for 15th-century fishermen and of a shelter for pasturing sheep. More ruins await above the banks at the mouth of the river, where an official trading harbour was located from 1920 and onwards.

Hikers leave from a small parking area near the driveway leading to the farm Unas and walk along the river Selfljt. An ideal stop would be by Krosshfi landing which in 1902 was made an official trading harbour. You will find the cylinder with visitors log book and stamp by the old winch in Stapavk. Merchandise was shipped to Stapavk until the nineteen thirties. An old trail lies from Krosshfi through Gnguskar to Njarvk
