going for one day walk from Skogar to Thorsmork, and as a host lodge

square meters large.
The new hut
replaced the old Baldvinnsskala that FI bought from
Flugbjörgunarsveitinni of Skogar (the Flight rescue squad) in 2007.
The old hut was old and in bad shape. The new one is still named
Baldvinnsskali in honor of Baldvinn Sigurdsson, who was the pioneer of
building the old hut.
