Thjofadalir hut, Kjolur ITA

Region: Highland
Coordinates: 64.7950000° N 19.7085000° W

The Icelandic Touring Association´s (ITA) small hut in valleys Thjofadalir was built in 1939 to accommodate 12 people. It is located at the foot of Mt Raudkollur and the hillock Throskuldur is nearby. It is on the ancient trail across the Kjolur highlands between the northern and southern parts of the country. It has a tiny entrance, a ground floor and an attic above half of the ground floor.

There are no utensils in the house. The latrine is a short distance away from the house. Visitors have to take all garbage with them. The environment offers short and pleasant hikes, i.e. Mt Hrutfell, Fagrahlid and jokulkrokur at the edge of glacier Langjokull. Mt Raudkollur and Oddnyjarhnjukur are also worthy goals.
