Hlodufell is a beautifully shaped table mountain to the
south of glacier Langjokull with a glacier eroded, flat top,
which is covered with eternal snow. Its upper part is
framed with precipitous cliffs, which allow mountaineers
access in a few places, and the view from the top on a fine
day is excellent. The Icelandic Touring Association's
hut (1971) accommodating 15 persons is located at
Hloduvellir to the southwest of the mountain.
River Bruara has its sources on Rotarsandur to the south of
mountain. Three 4wd tracks lead to the mountain, one
from the hut at Brunna on the Kaldidalur Route, another from
the Kjolur Route to the north of waterfall Gullfoss and the
third on from valley Laugardalur and lake Laugarvatn.
