We set off from Hólar University and head towards Víðinesriver. We cross a footbridge and then walk along the river to the Almenningsháls pass. We enjoy the impressive view from the pass before turning back along the ridge of Mount Elliði. On returning to Hólar a visit to the turfhouse farm Nýibær wraps up the walk.
