A hike through the valleys over Hóll in Önundarfjord. The path goes up to the first valley named "Hvestur" from the road, then along the mountain following a sheep track. It passes the second valley "Litlidalur" and through a spectacular rockfall in the third valley "Grjótdalur" that gives a feeling of walking through the city of elf's.
The hike then goes to "Ekkilsdalur" valley with a view into "Geldingardalur" to the right.
Two lakes are in Ekkilsdalur that are home of birds during the summer season.

    What a great hike with an amazing view at the top. Quite a struggle at the start, but well worth it. No markings, need the gps.

    Thank you for adding it to Wikiloc!
