The route across the Skorarheidi Moorland begins or ends in the Furufiord lowlands. It connects with the Hrafnsfiord Bay in the Jokulfiords Area. This was a much frequented route as well as the mountain pass Svartaskard to the bays Tharalatursfiord and Reykjarfiord and then onwards to the south in the Strandir District. River Furufjardara meanders through the lowlands at the end of the Furufiord Bay. In the past the farm in the valley was considered one of the most attractive choices in the Hornstrandir Area. When the area was left desolate in 1950, three farms had been inhabited in the valley at the same time. A few houses, an old prayer chapel (1900) and the emergency shelter of the National Life Saving Association are still standing.
