Þverárgil, hikingpath

The hiking path runs along Þverá river in Þverá canyon. The canyon is exceptionally beautiful as you can see colourful rock formations from an old volcano, a pleasant contrast to the otherwise dark rocks of the Smjörfjöll mountains.  

There is a rich bird life in this area, especially Icelandic highland birds. The view is magnificent over the Hofsá valley and out to sea.

 

 

 

The path is about two hours long and is a little bit upward. Therefore we put two shoes on the difficulty of the hike.

Starting point of the walk is above the Þverá river on rd. 919 - Sunnudalur road.
