  • Highland Farms

Fljtsdalshra Touring Club the municipality of Fljtsdalshra and Kaupvangur -Cultural Center in Vopnafjrur decided to join forces and make a special effort to promote travelling in the highlands, such as Jkuldalsheii heath and other similar surrounding areas.

An agreement was made to focus on the way of life, social interactions and culture of the people that used to live up there, often isolated from other farms for long periods of time. At each individual farmsite is a box with information about the farm you are visiting, the people who used to live there, with tales and stories about them, a guestbook to sign and a stamp.

The club co-operates with other touring clubs such as Feraflag Fjaramanna or FFAUST.

    The Touring Club of Fljtsdalshra runs and operates seven huts and lodges with sleeping accomodations, some located in the mountains and others in secluded places in the inlets and fjords south of Borgarfjrur eystri - reaching as far as Seyisfrur. The latest lodge is in Lomundar-fjrur and is run, as the ones in Breiavk and Hsavk, in close co-operation with the Touring Group in Borgarfjrur Eystri.

    Our club has also published a map of numerous hiking trails in Fljtsdalshra, Jkuldalsheii and Vopnafjrur, in addition to trails in close location to Snfell and Kverkfjll. The maps can be found in our huts and lodges, at The Tourist Information Center in Egilsstair and more. There you can read further descriptions of hiking trails called Vknaslir, covering trails in Breiavk, Hsavk and Lomundarfjrur. The part of the area here named Vknaslir is what we call"TheTrails of the Deserted Inlets The Hikers Paradise"because it is very secluded, peaceful and magnificent in its beauty.
