<-Next mountain hut -> Alftavotn hut
Touring Association Utivist restored a decayed farmers’ sheep roundup shelter in 1996-97. Its surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful. Large lava outcrops and the vegetation remind of a park. A short walk takes you to Holaskjol, but one day’s hikes include Mt Uxatindar and Mt Gjatindur.
A rather difficult 4wd track continues to the hut from the track to Mt Gjatindur. The hut offers mattresses and a gas-stove, but no other utensils. It is heated with oil, but is not insulated, and therefore not meant for winter use. It houses 16 persons.
GPS co-ordinates: N 63°58.849´ W 18°31.319´.
Transport from Holaskjol is available to Mountain Hut Skaelingar up on request.
Good for starting to hike To Thorsmork
