Fun and recreation

Fjalladyrd offers 4WD and hiking trips into the highlands north of Vatnajökull glacier. Our local guides can take you to some of the area’s greatest natural treasures. Our destinations include the central volcano ASKJA, glacier and hot springs of Kverkfjöll, Dragon Canyon, the highland oasis of Herðubreiðarlindir, various waterfalls and rivers and the huge canyon of Hafrahvammagljúfur. In addition, we can arrange customized trips for you. Please check our tours for more information. IF you are short on time a sightseeing flight south over some of the most spectacular places of the highlands is available with our partners at Volcano Heli.

While in Möðrudalur, you can take a number of interesting walks straight from the farm. These are marked with posts and are shown on a map available at Fjallakaffi restaurant or at the information hut. The hike into Hvannárgil gorge is certainly worth taking, not least due to the unusual waterfall at the head of the gorge. An evening hike to the gorge is also an ideal way to enjoy the sunset.
When groups come to Möðrudalur for a banquet, we provide entertainment which might include readings and local descriptions, as well as treasure hunts in true Möðrudalur style – all depending on the time and interests of each group.

New for the summer 2020 –  Fat Bike rental at Fjallakaffi. Make the most of your stay and discover the wonders of the area – the meadows, rivers and other interesting places cycling through the oasis of Mödrudalur.
