The Mutton Hut

The Mutton Hut produces smoked mutton meat and other delicacies from the smokehouse.

On the top floor of the farmhouse is a fully furnished apartment that can be rented, and if you want to bring your horses along they can stay in the stables in the winter or out in the field in the summer. Great riding trails are available, and it is only a short distance to some mountain huts and to Þjórsárdalur valley.

Horse riding groups can come and stay. The cost per horse is 380 kr/night.


Hiking trails

A jeep trail is from the farm inland to the waterfall Sneplafoss and a fantastic hike is along the river Þjórsá to the same waterfall. In the river there are many waterfalls, both small and large. There are three canyons in around the river; Bæjargljúfur amd Stöðlagljúfur are the closest to the farm and Svartaglúfur about 3 km inland.

Trees, birch, pines and larch, have been planted in Fossnes since 1993 and some of the trees are now around 3-4 meters tall.

Sandy areas as well as eroded earth have been systematically healed successfully to build up grass since 1992.



In the river Þverá a fishing license can be bought for 1-2 fishing rods. In the river it is possible to fish trout and artic charr as well as salmon later in the summer. The fishing areas are about 1 km from the river Þjórsá to the waterfall in the Bæjargljúfur canyon, but the fish can‘t go further up the river because of the waterfall. There are some nice deep waters in the river and the canyon is spectacularl with the waterfall and varied flora.

The fishing period is from beginning of June to end of September.
