Mountain view, glacial river and mossy lava fields

The farm Dalshöfði nestles under the moor’s edge about 5 km (3 mi) from the Ring Road. The moors and mountains by the town are an interesting hiking area. The glacial river Hverfisfljót, that grows quite a lot during the summer months, runs close by the town and a walk on its banks during summer is unforgettable. In the highlands north of Dalshöfið you will find the magical waterfall Lambhagafoss in the river Hverfisfljót, as well as many smaller rapids and waterfalls. Across from Dalshöfði, on the other side of the river, is Eldhraun, the eastern lava river from the 1783 Skaftáreldar eruption.
