Hiking Path: Stórurð

 Stórurð (Boulder Hollow)

The Stórurð area west of Dyrfjöll mountains is unique in all of Iceland. It is the site of magnificent landscapes: lush grassy hollows, massive rock mounds, sheer cliffs dozens of metres tall, beautiful ponds and distinct vegetation. A hike through Stórurð is an exceptional experience. It is best to set off from Vatnsskarð and hike along the mountain range, then take the lower route back, to Mt. Ósfjall (some 16 km). It is also possible to carry on to Borgarfjörður, to the north or south of Dyrfjöll. An entire day is needed to fully experience the area. A guest book that visitors can sign can be found in Stórurð.
