Route 15

Saxhóll – Bárðarkista

The best way onto Bárðarkista is from the Vættir rocks by the stream opposite the start of the trail to Saxhóll. Start from the Útnesvegur car park.

Walk over the moorland beside the River Saxhólslækur, then go further south to avoid the gill south of Bárðarkista. Turn north and walk through the flatland up onto the summit.

It is generally easy to reach the top, but those afraid of heights should not look down, as there are steep cliffs at the beginning.

Time: 3-4 hours
Distance: 5 km each way
