Highland Farms


The Touring Club of Fljótsdalshérað, the municipality of Fljótsdalshérað, and Vopnafjörðurs´ cultural and educational centre Kaupvangur have joined forces to increase cultural tourism services in Jökuldalsheiði and other nearby highlands. The old highland farms in these areas are being connected to each other by hiking trails. Receptacles are locasted at each set of ruins, containing a guestbook and a stamp along with information about that farm, including its residents and history. Cards for stamping at each site are sold at Sænautasel, the tourism information centres in Egilsstaðir and Vopnafjörður, Egilsstaðastofu by the camping place in Egilsstaðir and at the office of the Touring Club, Tjarnarás 8, Egilsstöðum. Those who submit cards stamped at 10 farms will be publicly recognised and their names put into a raffle, from which winners will be drawn in September each year at the office of the Touring Club. Grand prices.
