The Hvitarnes hut was the first to be built by the Iceland Touring Association in 1930. It is located 425 metres above mean sea level. It comprises the ground floor with two sleeping rooms, a kitchen and the entrance, the attic with mattresses on the floor and a small room. In the kitchen is a gas-stove and a log-stove, but no utensils. A WC is in a separate house and the warden lives in another small house.
The view from the hut is breathtaking, and this hut is the starting or end spot of hikes on the ancient Kjolur Route.
