Valtyshellir(N6506.410-W1428.517) // 3 hrs.

Walk from the main road east of Gils river (N6508,172- W1431.133), pass the ruins of Htn which used to be a large farm in the early ages. It is said to have had 18 doors on iron hinges and latches. Remains of old rock fences are visible.
In the 19th century an ancient sword was discovered there but it was promptly melted down and the metal casted for horseshoes and other necessities. Walk on further and along a flat grassy pasture named Klfavellir. Valtshellir is a small cavity further on behind some rubble north of Hjlpleysuvatn lake.
The walk is about 8,4 km. The visitors log and stamp is by the cave.
