and turfhouse farm Nýibær
3 HOURS / 5000 KR.
We set off from Hólar University following a path up the mountain Hólabyrða. The path is quite steep near the top but otherwise rather easy. Once up in Gvendarskál we visit the altar of Bishop Guðmundur the Good and have some refreshments. On returning to Hólar a visit to the turfhouse farm Nýibær wraps up the walk.
