This book illustrates in text and images upwards of 140 huts, old and new, that have been built throughout Iceland. The book contains a vast amount of information about the huts, their history and furnishings, in addition to mentioning their owners and supervisors. Description includes a photo of each hut, and their position is indicated by GPS quadrants and on a map. Approaches to the huts are clearly detailed and frequent mention is made of nearby natural gems.
A separate chapter describes various classic and historical mountain huts, some that still serve wilderness travellers.
This is a particularly useful handbook for all those who travel from summits to seashores, whether going on foot, by horseback or by automobile.
