Description

The start from the Breiðavík hut (65°27.83-13°40.29) is an easy 6-km walk on grass and gravelly ground on marked trail north of the Stóraá river.

At the trail crossing (65°26.85-13°45.90) on Víknaheiði heath (260m), one hikes 1.5 km to the Krossmelar (65°26.21-13°46.69) junction with the 4WD track to Loðmundarfjörður.

One then follows it for 6 km over Húsavíkurheiði (65°25.74-13°45.60) to the Húsavík hut (65°23.68-13°44.12), although in fair weather one can take detours from the track as desired.
