Víknaslóðir, trail in the land of the hidden people
Víknaslóðir, or the “Deserted Inlets”, takes you form one of this worlds great natural monuments, Stórurð, through mountains in amazing and blazing colours, along one of the country's most magnificent coastlines. Around  150 km of trails with countless possibilities, long or short through unearthly landscapes. Hvítserkur, Brúnavík, Dyrfjöll, Urðarhólar, Breiðavík, Loðmundarfjörður are just a few of the places you should not miss.
Hiking in Víknaslóðir is a unique experience. The mountains come in all shapes and sizes and the variety of colours is stunning; everything from the black sands of the beaches to the pinkish orange hues of the mountain ridges. The trails  wind themselves between  isolated coves and fjords over colourful hills and green valleys to down to the coast. Abandoned houses and ruins of ancient farms set their mark on the surroundings. With a little luck reindeer herds are seen, birds are abundant and the arctic flora of the area is characterized by large flowers and bright colours. 
Among Icelanders the vicinity of Borgarfjörður is known for its great natural beauty and incredible hiking routes but it is still untouched by mass-tourism. This isolated region is also considered to be a central province of the elves. In the Álfaborg (Elves fortress) their queen has long resided, governing and guarding her realm.  Whereas the Bishop of the elves reigns is the incredible Blábjörg, a gigantic columnar basalt wall that goes straight in to the blue ocean.
