Kjolur Route self drive

Region: Highland
Coordinates: 64.8572° N 19.7500° W

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. 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, Hveravellir and Kerlingarfjoll.
The distance between the Golden Waterfalls in the south and the first is Svara in the north is about 200 km.

Kjolur area was known for Outlaws – Thieves – Ghosts And Evil Spirits.
