Highlands farms, Walking through Iceland’s past

The Fljótsdalshérað Touring Club, the municipality of Fljótsdalshérað and Vopnafjörður ́s 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 located 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, campingplace in Egilsstaðir and information centres in Egilsstaðir and Vopnafjörður. Those who submit cards stamped at 10 farms will get a certificicate from the Touring club.
