Description

Once a year is a mountain run in Dyrfjöll area, here can you find more info about the trail: http://ingafanney.com/dyrfjoll-english Dyrfjöll is some of the more majestic mountains in the East.

Their name means "Door mountains" and the name comes from the pass that goes right between the mountain ridge, like a door ("Door Mountains Race").

It's certainly worth the visit every day, but for a mountain runner, the Dyrfjallahlaup race is the perfect event to explore the area. The view from the mountain passes on this route does not let anyone down.

The elevation is more than 1000 meters so one gets a good view over the area.

The route also lies through Stórurð, which consists of gigantic boulders made of tuff, meadows and freshwater ponds.
