The long extinct volcano of Þríhyrningur lies at the centre of Njáls Saga. Mountain landscapes encountered include views towards Hekla volcano and towards Tindfjallajökull icecap. Being well off the beaten track, many entrancing waterfalls are encountered, including Fossabrekkur.

Starting from Keldur (a now protected traditional farmstead), and after visiting a very beautiful waterfall, it is an extreme ride into the glorious Fljótshlid Valley; crossing a river adds to the excitement.

Cycling is mainly on gravel roads plus earthy/grassy tracks.
