The Domadalur Route is actually the westernmost part of the ancient Landmanna Route, more frequently called “Fjallabaksleid Nyrdri”. The Domadalur Route starts east of River Thjorsa in the Solvahraun lava area and continues to Lake Frostastadavatn in the east. In the west it passes between Mt Saudafell and Mt Valafell, through Klofningar (Hekla lava field from 1878). From there, a sidetrack continues to the south to the Skjolkviahraun lava (1970) and the northeastern shoulder of the Hekla volcano. After Klofningar an old track continues to the fissure craters of Valagja and across the area where River Helliskvisl disappears into the sand. A short distance further east the Domadalur Route crosses the southernmost tongue of the Lambafitjahraun lava field (1913) and along the hills of Krokagiljabrunir and Mt Saudleysur.
