    Skemmtileg leið, fór þarna um í fyrra með góðum hóp sem brúaði Hlöðuvíkurósinn og er forvitin um hvort brúin standi enn - getur þú sagt mér það?

    Hlöðuvíkurósin, þá meinar þú Kjaransána er það ekki? Hún var brúuð (með trumbum) um miðjan júlímánuð í fyrra og var enn nú í lok júlí 2011.

    Bæði Hlöðuvíkurós sem og Kjaransáin eru brúið með rekadrumbum sem standa þegar þetta er skrifað (júlí 2011).

    Hello, I am visiting Iceland in july and am thinking about doing this route.
    I was wondering how you got to the starting point and how you got back from the end of this trip.
    Did you have a car? Is it possible to get there in public transport or hitch-hiking?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello
    You have to take a boat to both ends of this trip. there are no roads and this is extreamly rural aria and no service, you are on your own - fantastic aria.
    Go to vesturferdir.is to book the boat trip.

    You can take a boat from Ísafjörður, see: http://www.westtours.is/

    There is little infrastructure in this area, you are on your own. Cheers. Broddi.

    If you want to look at better maps of this area check out this site (see link below), its runned by "National Land Survey of Iceland"

    http://atlas.lmi.is/kortasja/

    on the right corner is "Kortaval", which means different kind of maps, check out "Atlaskort" they are old but informative.

    if you switch to English, the page will ask for username password so stay with the icelandic version.
