Hafrahvammaglj˙fur


A beautiful hike through the lower parts of Hafrahvammarglj˙fur. The hike starts at a car park few kilometers from the Kßrahnj˙kastÝfla. At first you have to stay up on the banks of the canyon before the riverbed is accessible. Then the riverbed is followed around Hnitaspor­ur and up Desjarßrgil. When the first impassable falls are reached you walk up and out of Desjarßrdalur towards Hrafnkelsdalur. For a shorter version of the walk you can be picked up on that ridge at B˙rfell. Otherwise the hike is continued down to Hrafnkelsdalur and ends at A­albˇl farm. The riverbed in Hafrahvammaglj˙fur is covered with large rocks that are slippery where the river has to be crossed and it is there for recommended that you use trekking poles.
