The cairn, hiking

Departure from the parking lot by Ögurnes and hiking upp Ögurháls to the mountain above Ögur. On our way we pass three cairns, the last one called Gvendar-altar, named after Guðmundur the good, a bishop who blessed various parts of Iceland in his time. It is customary to throw three stones at the altar. From this point there is a great view over Ísafjarðardjúp.


At the top of the mountain there is a cairn which is a part of the old giant sunwatch of Ögurvík and it shows when the time is 6PM. Inside the cairn you will find a guestbook where hikers can sign their names. From the  cairn we hike back to Ögur.


From Ögur travellers can either walk back or be transferred to their cars in Ögurnes.


Duration aprox. 3 hours. Price 7.500 ISK per person. Free for 15 years old and under.
