small hut in valleys Thjofadalir was built in 1939 to accommodate 12
people. It is located at the foot of Mt Raudkollur and the
hillock Throskuldur is nearby. It is on the ancient trail across
the Kjolur highlands between the northern and southern parts of the
country. It has a tiny entrance, a ground floor and an attic
above half of the ground floor. There are no utensils in the
house. The latrine is a short distance away from the house.
Visitors have to take all garbage with them. The environment
offers short and pleasant hikes, i.e. Mt Hrutfell, Fagrahlid and
jokulkrokur at the edge of glacier Langjokull. Mt Raudkollur and
Oddnyjarhnjukur are also worthy goals.
