Spanarhóll

Spanarhóll is in the north end of Fjórðungsháls, 591 m high. You drive to the south up Fell to the farm Refsmýri. Walk from the sign by Þorleifará river and up along the river, about 0,5 km. Then you turn from the river and walk towards Hlíðarsel and onwards up the canyon above the ruins upon Fjórðungur on the Fell heath. From there the way to Spanarhóll is easily hiked. There are four hills and people should walk towards all of them. One can also hike to Spanarhóll hill by going up by the Ormarsstaðir river or from Fjallssel up to the edge, and then inland. The cylinder is on top of the biggest hill. At the hill, lore has it that there is a presence of elves or hidden people.
