Are The Holy Grail In
In 2004, a
team of Italian researchers began an excavation in Iceland
searching for a secret chamber that apparently had been
filled with sacred books and objects from the Temple of
Jerusalem. The search for the Holy Grail, which is
associated with Christ’s Last Supper, legends of the Holy
Chalice, the Knights Templar, and special powers, has
continued ceaselessly throughout the ages.
Are the Holy Grail in the
Valley of Thievs?
or in the mountain range
or by the river
The Kjolur area (600-700m) lies between the Langjokull glacier in the west and the
Hofsjokull glacier in the east, the glacial river Hvita in the south and river
Seydisa in the north. In the east and the south are barren remnants from the
Ice age, gray moraines, and low mountains decorate the otherwise plateau like landscape, which is
ideal for shorter or longer hikes between huts.
Kjolur area was known for
Thieves - Ghosts And Evil Spirits.
The whole area was much more vegetated, but was
desolated by overgrazing.
On a fine day the panoramic view from the
Kjolur route is excellent. There are several huts on the way across
and most of them belong the Icelandic Touring
Association. The distance between the Golden Waterfalls in the
south and the first farm in the north is about 200 km.
