Itinerary description

Þakgil szlak czerwony. Jeden z trzech wyznakowanych szlaków w tym rejonie. Wszystkie zaczynają się na campingu. Ten prowadzi nas najpierw doliną prze brody a następnie wspina się bardzo stromo pod górę (fantastyczny widok na dolinę). Po ostrym i krótkim podejściu wypłaszcza się i wchodzimy łagodnie na górę Mælifell (nie mylić z dużo popularniejszym wulkanem o tej samej nazwie) W oddali widać lodowiec , nieco bliżej wodospad. Na tym atrakcje się kończą ostatnie 6km biegnie w dół drogą 4x4.

    Þessi leið er með stórbrotnu útsýni. Hún var gengin og hlaupin á víxl. Vel merkt en þó mikilvægt að styðjast við GPS punkta á nokkrum stöðum. Ekki fyrir mjög lofthrædda!
    Fórum í lok maí og þurfti að vaða 2 nokkuð straum harðar ár í upphafi sem náðu uppí klof. Allt hófst þetta og í dásamlegu veðri er þessi leið algjörlega einstök. Uppá Mælifell er nokkuð bratt og gengið er eftir hryggjum. Síðustu 6 km er gengið á vegslóða.

    I wouldn’t call this easy because of the descent, which gets a bit steep and treacherous and the river crossing is extremely tricky.
