Dalur - Skarvanes

From Skarvanes, there are two parallel paths. Go south along the upper one. The path ends by a broken stone wall, and there, the path to Dalur begins.

Past Dalsrók, about half a kilometre from Skarvanes, is a short steep stretch downwards. Otherwise,the path slowly inclines up towards Handasti Varði. 

While you walk up to Handasti Varði, you can see marshland and Lake Vatnsdalur on the right.

After the last cairn in Dalur, walk along the road down to the village. 

Dalur is the southernmost of the villages on Sandur. It was connected to the other villages by road in 1963.

The church in the village is from 1957.
