Trip description

The Dyrfjöll mountain was first climbed by two local farmers in 1952.
This is a really diverse hiking trail with untouched mossy areas, clear pools and glacier landscape. The mountain itself has steep slopes and loose gravel. The view from the top is something to remember.
After the hike we relax in the spa in Blábjörg in Borgarfjörður.
