Highlands - Kjolur
The Kjolur area (600-700m) lies between the Langjokull glacier in the west and the Hofsjokull glacier in the east, the glacial river Hvita in the south and river Seydisa in the north. In the east and the south are barren remnants from the Ice age, gray moraines, and low mountains decorate the otherwise plateau like landscape, which is ideal for shorter or longer hikes between huts.

The whole area was much more vegetated than it is nowadays. It was desolated by overgrazing. On a fine day the panoramic view from the Kjölur route is excellent. There are several huts on the way across and most of them belong the Icelandic Tourist Club. The distance between the Golden Waterfalls in the south and the first farm in the north is about 200 km.
