Hiking up the Mountain Haus takes about 3 hours.
Not into hiking? Don’t worry, we offer another tour of Öngulsstaðir
We start at Lamb Inn Öngulsstaðir. Mountain Haus is just above Öngulsstaðir, we hike in the area for about 3 hours up to Mountain Haus and down on the other side to the remainder of the farm Helgársel by Helgá river, where we tell the story about that abandoned farm. From there we walk by the river Garðsá. We stop at the edge of Garðsá Canyon and view the spectacular and beautiful landscape.
From Garðsá Canyon we are driven to The Old Farmhouse at Öngulsstaðir where we get to know the history of this remarkable house as well as getting the taste of the local micro breweries beer from North Iceland.
Finally, the tour ends with a delicious local meal at Lamb Inn restaurant.
