Kerlingarfjöll, the untouched beauty
15. December 2014
A Hiker’s paradise in the interior
Only accesible three to four months per year on Road 35, this area of the Highlands is one of the best unspoiled gems on the list of Icelandic wonderlands. Unexplored up to the 19th century, it was believed to be the homeland of trolls and the only people that would venture here were thieves and outlaws. Today, Kerlingarfjöll is still an unbeaten track by tourists and it should be on the checklist of all nature lovers.
The land of trolls
Kerlingarfjöll means ‘Old Woman’s Mountain’, a name inspired by ancient folk tales. It is said that an old troll lady was caught out by the sunrise and therefore turned to stone. You can still see her silhouette carved in the 25 m high tuff stone pillar at Kerlingartindur peak.
Raised from fire and ice
Iceland is often called the country of fire and ice. One can truely understand this at the Kerlingarfjöll mountain range.
