Stórurð hike

day tour – hiking – all year

If hiking is your thing and you are in East Iceland, you should not miss out on the hike to Stórurð.

Stórurð is a unique place in Icelandic nature. It lies below the small glacier west of Dyrfjöll mountains. This boulder area was most likely created by a landslide at the end of the latest cold era of the Ice Age. The boulders were carried by a glacier snout to where they now lie. Stórurð consists of gigantic tuff boulders, charming meadows and beautiful ponds. The scenery is truly stunning.

This day tour starts in Egilsstaðir or Borgarfjörður. The hike starts in Vatnsskarð pass or in Njarðvík region.
