Almannaskarð

Almannaskarð is an old mountain road about 10 km
to the east of Höfn. Today the south-west ramp is closed for car traffic, as in
2005 it was replaced by a 1300 m long tunnel that curves under a mountain.
Since then the area has become a popular hiking path for locals and at the top
of the road is a magnificent viewpoint where you can enjoy a panoramic view of
the Hornafjörður region as well as Vatnajökull glacier, on a clear day. It is a
charming stop for those who crave the tranquility and natural beauty of the
countryside.
