The tracks leading to the lakes in
those moorlands start from several valleys in Northern
Iceland, such as the valleys Vatnsdalur, Blondudalur and Svartardalur in the
Huna District and Maelifellsdalur and Vesturdalur in the Skagafiord District. The routes 751
and 752 through the valley Vatnsdalur turn into a 4wd track, which continues across an
area called Storisandur and connects with the Kjolur route through the
That route (731, 732 and F37) lies through the valley Blondudalur and is easily
accessible by all cars. If you continue south and are headed for the Eyvindarstada
Moorland, you must turn onto a 4wd track some
distance north of a hill called Geirsalda. On that track you
would have to ford the glacial rivers Blanda and
Strangakvisl and smaller streams.
main route from road no 1 up there (751, 752 and F72) is a
4wd track meandering through the valley Vesturdalur to the
lakes Asbjarnarvotn and the tourist hut by Mt. Laugafell.
Those routes and tracks are slow in many
places and they pass several mountain huts (mainly used and owned by the farmers, who
graze their sheep up there). Most of those, who have enjoyed travelling
spending some time by the lakes of those relatively well vegetated
moorlands, have sprouted some of
their roots there.
