About Kjolur Route F-35

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. The distance between the Golden Waterfalls in the south and the first farm in the north is about 200 km.
Kjolur area was known for Outlaws – Thieves – Ghosts And Evil Spirits.
Are the Myth of Holy Grail on Kjolur Route!!

Hiking. This part of the Interior offers a great variety of possibilities for short or long hikes. In most cases it depends on the individual traveler to decide which hillock or mountain is the best vantage point, or how far to go into the wilderness. Long hikes require good planning, preparations, and physical fitness. The psychology has to be considered as well. Sometimes the vast, barren landscapes, and the solitude overwhelm hikers, who are travelling alone and do not meet a soul for days on end.

Remember! Off road driving is strictly prohibited!
