The first day of our tour will start with arriving at Egilsstaðir airport from Reykjavík. After that, we will reach the locally-owned Álfheimar Country Hotel in Borgarfjörður, our home for the next five nights. When we settle in, our hiking adventure will begin.
Today we'll have a relatively easy day hike of around 12 km (7.5 mi) and 400 m (1312 ft) elevation. At the beginning of this adventure, we'll hike up to the local village, where we'll find the Old turf house, local fish factory, concert hall, and other exciting locations along the way.
After we've had our lunch, we'll continue our journey through the unspoiled trails of the Borgarfjörður valley. We'll go up to Dimmidalur (the Dark Valley) and Jökuldalur (Glacier Valley) to enjoy the beautiful, rugged landscape among the Door Mountains.
During this trip, we'll also get acquainted with elves. We'll walk through the elf community of Lobbuhraun and later visit their home in Dimmidalur valley. Later on, we'll return to Bakkagerði village, where we'll notice many exciting aspects and see the Elf Queen at Álfaborg (Elf Hill).
