of the Touring Association Utivist restored the decayed farmers' sheep
roundup hut in 2001. The farmers had stopped using it after the
huts were built at the nearby Holaskjol, which is also open for
An adequate jeep-track ends 200-300 metres from the hut, making the
stay there more quiet and pieceful. Nature lovers sometimes
spend hours on end astounded by the beauty of the surroundings.
Groups of riders frequent this area and keep their horses in a pen
north of the house. The surroundings of the hut are well
vegetated and offer good camping spots.
Running water and WC are outside the hut, which accommodates 24
people. Nearby hiking trails take you to Strutslaug or to
Gjatindur in Eldgja (a whole day) or shorter distances, i.e to
63° 53.890'N 18° 41.467'W
