    A nice hike from the parkingspot at Kaldárbotnar. The trip takes you to Búrfellsgjá, over to Húsfell, a less visited spot. From there, over Valahnjúkar and finally to the top of Mt. Helgafell and back to the parking spot...

    Start or end at the lake or a small parking lot near the trail start close to bláfjöll. Quite a easy walk in general but a short and fairly steep point at selvogsvegur. At hliðarvatn down to the parkinglot there is a rea...

    Great conditions, sunny with strong SW wind on hills. 5-10cm fresh snow in parts (dependant on terrain and wind) made for heavy walking. Head south from parking and scoot round East side of small peaks. Then straight acr...

    Great little spot but weather limited scope. 1st climb steep and second climb smoother but more exposed. driving sleet limited the walk time. N.b. wikiloc stopped recording and missed out 1/2 ofsecond climb.

    We took the popular route but in reverse and I highly recommend that! It's easier this way and more beautiful. Later we explored a very interesting area with a colourful rocks.

    Heiðmörk, hlíðahringur. Fairly level, when walking north you will pass through an area with extensive Alaskan lupine (purple flower). I recommend avoiding the lupine and walking to the left of the trail as it is very tre...

    Challenging trail on the ridge of the west side of the lake up to the hills, then the second part easy close to the lake. Hope you’ll find your way more challenging than you can, there are some little climbs to do or you...

    Dusting of the cobwebs. No wind, 0C, sunny and beautiful day. Fell flat on my arse before I even made it to the climb as the plaine in front was covered in frozen puddles. Went up a different 1st section to avoid frost, ...

    Skemmtilegur snúningur á gamla, góða Helgafellinu. Flestir hafa gengið á Helgafell um hrygginn eða gilið en færri rölt í gegnum steinbogann sunnanmegin. Rölt vestur fyrir fjallið eftir góðum stíg og farið upp nokkuð brat...

    Helgafell í Hafnarfirði er fyrir mér mitt heimafjall. Það er stutt frá Hafnarfirði og hentar mér vel til að halda mér í formi yfir vetrartímann. Þegar vorar og færið fer að skána fer ég sérlega skemmtilega leið á top...

    Gengum upp á Helgafell og þar sem veðrið var frábært eins og oft er á fellinu gengum við þvert yfir það og niður um gat sem leynist á því sunnanverðu. Er niður var komið gengum við vestur fyrir fellið og í hálfhring sem ...
