Tracks to Fimmvörðuháls hut

04. ágúst 2022

Those who are hiking to Fimmvörðuskáli hut are advised not to take the traditional route to the cabin, as you have to cross a snow bridge that is not to good at this time of year or wade across a river. Therefore, we recommend choosing the following routes:

If you are hiking from Skógar it is best to walk up the slope south of the cabin instead of the traditional hiking trail from the pass east of the cabin as this picture shows.


If you are hiking from Básar hut, it is best to choose the red route south of Magni og Móði and come to Fimmvörðuháls hut from west.
